Having trouble firing up android studio. I get the following message: The environment variable JAVA_HOME (with the value of ?C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_79\jre and every other variation I can guess) does not point to a valid JVM installation. I am trying to do this on a windows xp desktop. I just installed Android Studio and the jdk file today.
The environment variable
JAVA_HOME does not point to a valid JVM installation
JAVA_HOME should be set to the root of your Java installation.
set JAVA_HOME="C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_79\
or add this value to the system environment variables.
See What are PATH and other environment variables, and how can I set or use them? for more information.
