Why can I not install the Android SDK on Windows 7?

Ronnie June 10, 2011

Why doesn’t the Android SDK install for me? I’m running Windows 7 64-bit. I read through the procedure and installed Eclipse, the Java JDK and when I came to the Android SDK, it wouldn’t detect the presence of my Java JDK.

Could I get a hand with this please? Your help much appreciated in advance :)

    Just uninstall the 64-bit Java JDK version and then install the 32-bit version! or instal it with the 64bits version

    Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to the root of your JDK
    JAVA_HOME="C:Program FilesJavajdk1.6.0_25"
    This will also fix this same issue for other applications or installers that check against the JAVA_HOME variable as well.

    or use this reg key
    JDK not found on Installing Android SDK

    I've heard there's a workaround to this bug. When you get the error message, click back, then hit next, and it should find it.

    If it makes you feel any better, I couldnt get it work on OSX either, so I gave up usability testing for those things.
