I am not able to install Android studio after downloading it

  1. I have downloaded and installed JDK tool in my programx86 for windows 32.
  2. I have set JAVA_HOME AND JDK_HOME variables. I have also set path.
  3. I checked in the command prompt if JDK is installed and it is showing me version 1.8
  4. Then, I downloaded Android studio.zip for windows 32.
  5. Unzipped it, and saved it in the programx86 folder.
  6. Now, I am suppose to run studio.bat and get the android window. But, in actual, when I click on studio.bat, I just get a flash and then nothing happens.

I tried everything. Uninstalling/installing java again and again. Setting the java path. Changing the location of Android studio. But, it is not working for me. I am not getting the android installed. Please someone help.

I have a error file in my recent files. When I opened it, it has long text but the main msg is "EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) at pc=0x33773dd4, pid=7404, tid=0x00003898 #

JRE version: OpenJDK Runtime Environment (8.0_152-b02) (build 1.8.0_152-release-1024-b02)

Java VM: OpenJDK Server VM (25.152-b02 mixed mode windows-x86 )"

If this gives you a clue.

I'm a little late to the party, but I was having the same issue as you and here's what fixed it for me: setting a system variable named STUDIO_JDK to the path of your JDK installation ("C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_181" in my case) then run "studio.bat".

Looking inside the .bat it looks like Android Studio checks STUDIO_JDK before JAVA_HOME or JDK_HOME.
