## Android SDK installation doesn't find JDK

2021-6-3 anglehua

I'm trying to install the Android SDK on my Windows 7 x64 System.

`jdk-6u23-windows-x64.exe` is installed, but the Android SDK setup refuses to proceed because it doesn't find the JDK installation.

Is this a known issue? And is there a solution?

Press Back when you get the notification and then Next. This time it will find the `JDK`.

Actual SETUP:

• OS: Windows 8.1
• JDK file: jdk-8u11-windows-x64.exe

Install the `x64 JDK`, and try the back-next option first, and then try setting `JAVA_HOME` like the error message says, but if that doesn't work for you either, then try this:

Do as it says, set `JAVA_HOME` in your environment variables, but in the path use forward slashes instead of backslashes.

Seriously.

For me it failed when `JAVA_HOME` was `C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_31` but worked fine when it was `C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.6.0_31` - drove me nuts!

If this is not enough, also add to the beginning of the Environment Variable `Path` %JAVA_HOME%;

Updated values in System Environment Variables:

• `JAVA_HOME=C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.8.0_11`
• `JRE_HOME=C:/Program Files/Java/jre8`
• `Path=%JAVA_HOME%;C:...`
