Today, Google announced the new Android Studio IDE at its annual Google I/O conference. It looks to be a great improvement over Eclipse, especially when developing apps for different screen sizes such as phones and tablets.
However, if you are running Windows 7 or Windows 8, you may have issues running the application. Several users have reported not being able to run the application after it has been installed. We also had this same problem.
If you are like us, eager developers that want to play with cool, new tools, you can fix this issue by doing the following:
- Right click on My Computer, and select Properties.
- Click on “Advanced system settings” and go to the “Advanced” tab.
- On the bottom, click the “Environment Variables” button. This will bring up the Environment Variables screen, you will see two sections, User Variables (at the top), and System Variables (at the bottom).
- Add a system variable with the name JDK_HOME, and the value equal to the path to your JDK install.
Step 4 might differ based on how your system is setup, but as an example, here are the settings that worked for us:
Variable name: JDK_HOME
Variable Value: c:Program FilesJavajdk1.7.0_21
Thank you kindly!
[…] Importante: Como puede verse en la imagen que encabeza el artículo se trata de una versión preview. Esto quiere decir que no será todo lo estable que deseamos y que esta versión no se recomienda para un entorno de producción. En Windows por ejemplo da problemas, pero podemos solucionarlo (gracias a @DavidGNavas) con lo que proponen en esta página. […]

I’ve followed the JAVA_HOME and JDK_HOME suggestions from here and other sites but still am unable to get AS running. What version of the JDK must I have? I’ve used Eclipse for years to do Java development so I just assumed my machine was configured correctly.
I am using JDK 1.7.0u21. This should be the latest JDK available.
thanks, i figured i didnt had the jdk
found in this page:
This info is OK, but just so you know, if you get the error with msvcr100.dll you will still be having problems starting Android Studio, even after you add the system variables. The first time (I didn’t really googled) I thought I fixed it by adding the JDK path, not as a new variable, but editing the “Path” variable that’s already created by default on Windows system variables (it separates different folders with the “;” delimiter). This allowed me to initialize Android Studio, but it wasn’t stable. It was still buggy and occasionally it wouldn’t initialize at all.
If after adding the JDK_HOME variable you’re still having an error message related with msvcr100.dll, you have to download Visual C++ package – 32-bit or 64-bit from Microsoft.
At the end, I deleted the JDK from the “Path” variable so I would have a clean start. I installed the C++ package, added the JDK_HOME variable, and everything it’s working now.
Visual C++ package – 32-bit: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=5555
Visual C++ package – 64-bit: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=14632
I have Windows 8 – 64-bits.
PLease help,followed all instructions but still wont run
