Please validate either ANDROID_STUDIO_JDK, or JDK_HOME or JAVA_HOME points to valid JDK installation.

You get this error when you try to open Android Studio on Windows Operating System when the IDE is not able to find Java in the system.

  1. If you do not have JDK installed download it and get it installed.
  2. If Java JDK is already installed you should find it at : C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.x.x_xx
  3. Go to Start -> Computer -> System Properties -> Advanced System Properties -> Advance -> Environment Variables
  4. Add new variable : Variable Name : JAVA_HOME ,Variable value : C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.x.x_xx
  5. Add (append) new system variable : Variable Name : PATH , Variable value : ;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.x.x_xx\bin
