Install Android Studio ( Windows )
Posted by Administrator on 17 September 2016 10:34 am

Setting up Android Studio takes just a few clicks.

While the Android Studio download completes, verify which version of the JDK you have: open a command line and typejavac -version. If the JDK is not available or the version is lower than 1.8, download the Java SE Development Kit 8.

To install Android Studio on Windows, proceed as follows:

  1. Launch the .exe file you downloaded.
  2. Follow the setup wizard to install Android Studio and any necessary SDK tools.

    On some Windows systems, the launcher script does not find where the JDK is installed. If you encounter this problem, you need to set an environment variable indicating the correct location.

    Select Start menu > Computer > System Properties > Advanced System Properties. Then open Advanced tab > Environment Variables and add a new system variable JAVA_HOME that points to your JDK folder, for example C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_77.


That's it! The following video shows each step of the recommended setup procedure.

Notice for Windows 10 Anniversary Update users: The Android Emulator currently does not support this update to Windows 10 (version 1607), due to a new digital signing requirement for drivers such as the Intel HAXM driver, which the Android Emulator requires. We expect to have a new version of the HAXM driver with the required signature by the end of September, 2016. (Previous HAXM installations still work; the restriction affects only new attempts to install the driver.) For details, see issue 221594.

As new tools and other APIs become available, Android Studio tells you with a pop-up, or you can check for updates by clicking Help > Check for Update.
