JDK not found on Installing Android SDK

So last night I was installing Android SDK r8 on Windows 7 64bit and using JDK 6 64bit.

The installer gave me this…

But I have installed JDK, so somehow the installer cannot find my JDK path and adding JDK location to my PATH doesn’t solve it.

I’ve googled about it, and some people have this solutions:

  1. Use JDK 32bit
  2. Use Android SDK (.zip) installer

But I don’t want to do those :D I have 64bit environment, so I want to use JDK 64bit (mainly because I am too lazy to re-download those)

And then I found this discussion here that tells me to change some registry key, because the SDK installer somehow is looking for 32bit JDK path.

So I export this key

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\]

and apply some changes so it will be imported to

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\]

(basically just find-and-replace

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\

into

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\

)

Below is the new registry file, I save it to .reg extension and Import it to my registry. Voila! my Android SDK r8 now works!

Update:
Zukro notified in the comment box that you can try a faster way, I never tried this method but many notified that it works, no matter how weird it may sound :)

I quote Zukro’s comment directly

When there’s a pop up say JDK not found. just press ‘back’ button and then press again ‘next’ button.. look what happened!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, there’s magic in that I presume :P

    Ta muchly, fixed the issue for me too. Shame it’s required /grr

  16. 24 Alex January 6, 2011 at 1:32 am

    Hi, I tried this but the installer still does not find my 64-bit JDK installation.
    I have saved that text as a .reg and run it, it told me the values were added to the registry. I still get the same message from the installer, even after a restart. Any ideas?

    • 25 Eru January 6, 2011 at 3:51 am

      Hi, Not sure about it Alex, have you check what is the value of
      this key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\] and compare it to your JDK installation path? Since this registry file only applies to standard JDK installation path

      If it does not work, you should try the zip SDK instalation then.

  17. 27 frogola January 6, 2011 at 5:35 pm

    Thanks man, worked like a charm.

  18. 28 Joshua Davison January 7, 2011 at 5:27 am

  26. 36 Rene January 9, 2011 at 5:54 am

    Thank you!!! Your comprehensive registry file example worked for me whereas the example provided on StackOverflow did not work.

    My exported registry settings after installeing the JDK were a much more limited set like the ones shown on StackOverflow. I feel grateful for however you managed to get such a comprehensive set of registry settings. They made the difference.

  27. 37 Leoparddrengen January 10, 2011 at 4:23 pm

    holy crap you have no idea how many different versions of java sdk i downloaded to try and get it to work ffs

  36. 49 Bruce Sauls January 21, 2011 at 7:51 pm

    Thank you. I’m on Vista 64. Pasted your text into notepad, searched and replaced C: to F:, changed client to server (no client folder in my jre/bin/). Imported with regedit and voila!, happy ending to miserable morning.

  37. 50 miss_agent_girl January 21, 2011 at 8:43 pm

    HOLY CRAP YOU TOTALLY ROCK!

    I’ve been face-palming all day trying to get around this problem and I’ve been thru at least about 10 other forums with various suggestions and nothing worked.

    Found this thread…copied and imported the regfile changes…I’m Golden!

    Beers!

    Perfect ! Many thanks !

  40. 53 ph January 23, 2011 at 8:00 am

    Just in case anyone is like me and doesn’t see the details, my first attempt didn’t work because I exported the HKEY_CURRENT_USER/javasoft key and not the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/javasoft key. Everything will seem to go well, but of course it won’t work.

  41. 54 Robin January 23, 2011 at 10:32 pm

    Awsome, thank you so much for that :)

  48. 61 Yuni January 28, 2011 at 11:22 pm

    When exporting the javasoft key, is there a naming convention to obey or can you name them anything(.reg)?

    After i had imported the edited .reg file i exported the javasoft key again and noticed that it did not contain the changes i had made (adding \Wow6432Node), is that normal?

    • 62 Eru February 8, 2011 at 2:50 am

      Well, it’s recomended to use (.reg) and then import it into the registry.
      Wow6432Node should be there by default if your Windows 7 OS is a 64bit one, and the changes should be applied after you import the file.

  49. 63 micku7zu January 31, 2011 at 2:37 pm

    Thanks, finaly it works!!!

  50. 64 Coder February 11, 2011 at 7:29 am

    i have the same problem with different environment
    i’m using WinXP SP3 32bit, JDK6u24 32bit
    but still i got the problem ( ‘-‘)
    can some one help

  52. 67 zukro February 23, 2011 at 4:54 am

    hey guys!!! good thing that you can found the way to install it.

    by my friend found a better way.

    when there’s a pop up say JDK not found. just press ‘back’ button and then press again ‘next’ button..

    look what happened!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • 68 tristam March 4, 2011 at 8:34 pm

      Zukro, I want to give you two big thumbs up. I have Vista 32bit and installed the 32 JDK but it was telling me not found.

      Your method works swell. To the internet, ALL READ THIS.

    • 69 BOS March 5, 2011 at 7:39 pm

      I had the same issue on my Windows 7 with JDK6u24 64bit installed. When I ran Android SDK installer (installer_r10-windows.exe), it complained that ‘JDK is not found’ (even though I had already updated PATH). After some googling,I found couple of suggestions on updating the registry and zukro’s suggestion. Being the easiest option, I decided to follow zukro’s option first. Clicked back when Android SDK installer complained about JDK and then click next. wow!! it detected JDK.
      I would recommend to try this simple option first. It worked for me. should work for others also. If it didn’t, you can always follow the registry approach.

    • 70 chandan March 6, 2011 at 9:42 am

      Thanks buddy…it worked … no need to struggle with the registry.

    • 71 agFinder March 27, 2011 at 4:31 am

      zukro you’re a genius!!! How could it have been so easy ????

    • 73 Spacesailor August 26, 2011 at 2:08 pm

      TANK…………IT WORK FINE!!!

    • 74 nayay18 September 21, 2011 at 10:47 pm

      Its amazing…Thanks so much…I almost re-download it.. :D

  53. 75 zukro February 23, 2011 at 4:56 am

    btw i use windows xp sp3

  54. 76 Gerto February 26, 2011 at 7:31 am

    Zukro is right, did exactly the same (windows 7) and it worked: Just press back and next again.

    (I had tried 20 times already by closing the setup and trying again)

  55. 79 Rodrigo March 2, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    lol the zukro way is magic XD

  56. 80 Jeremy Warne March 4, 2011 at 6:57 am

    plus one for back/next! how funny :D

  57. 81 Works March 7, 2011 at 9:00 am

    Back button trick is cool! Atleast somebody left the bug there ;-)

  58. 82 Tony March 8, 2011 at 9:47 pm

    that is just brilliant. Biggest software product company in the world (or thereabouts) and we have a ridiculaous fix to a problem that should never occur!

    thanks for the tip, I could have wasted hours because of poor software testing of the installer!

    Tony

    • 83 Eru March 17, 2011 at 8:01 am

      Lol, yeap a ridiculous trick that I have to try few times just to believe that it works :D

      Probably Google just want to show how “automagic” their installer are

  59. 84 Shirlene Lim March 9, 2011 at 9:51 am

    Thanks Zukro! Really fantastic!

  60. 85 SK15 March 13, 2011 at 11:12 pm

    Yes, this procedure works back and forth just to test now1

  61. 86 OldNoob March 14, 2011 at 7:15 am

    Windows 7 64bit. The “Back and then Next” Did indeed work for me.
    Go figure?

  62. 88 Dipesh March 15, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    THAT WAS MAGIC INDEED!!
    who in their right sense would have gone back and then forward again!!!

    Very nice! Thank you! The “click back” method worked for me!

  66. 92 Matthew March 24, 2011 at 1:02 pm

    YES!!! Just click ‘back’ then ‘Next’. Voila!

  67. 93 Bourgeois March 24, 2011 at 7:56 pm

  70. 96 Tijs March 31, 2011 at 1:41 pm

    Back and Next. Whaha Fun XD it works.

    I was thinkin like: wow that are a lot of keys in registry?! but okay this works great. just a simple bug.

    How the hell did anyone discover this thing???

  71. 97 Mohammed March 31, 2011 at 10:16 pm

    back and next>>>>>works like a charm

  72. 98 Michael April 1, 2011 at 2:36 pm

    I also encountered this problem on windows7 32bit OS when installing the SDK which is recommend by the websit.
    I google and baidu(China search engine) it.
    There is a easy method to solve this problem.
    After clicking the next btn, you will see the next page’s next btn disabled. You just need to click the back btn and than try to click the next but, the installing program will can detect the OS has installed the JDK.

  73. 99 TimS April 2, 2011 at 5:22 pm

    Back and next didn’t work for me. :( Maybe they fixed it?

    • 100 Eru April 5, 2011 at 7:28 am

      A fix that didn’t resolve the main problem then :D

      I install the fresh downloaded SDK about 2 weeks ago and the back-next trick kind of still working (Win 7 64bit)

      Does the registry trick still applies to you?

  74. 101 Praveen April 3, 2011 at 5:26 am

    Thanks dude

  75. 102 Yuni April 5, 2011 at 6:10 pm

    Ok mine says it finds jdk 1.6 but it still doesn’t work (even with the back n’ next trick).
    I even tried back and next on every screen.

    What am i doing wrong? Been trying for ages guys, help me.
    (Win7 64bit)
    Thanks

  76. 103 Jan April 5, 2011 at 6:49 pm

    zukro thank you. As you have said, I just pressed ‘back’ button and then pressed again ‘next’ button and it worked.

  77. 105 Mateus April 13, 2011 at 11:38 am

    The Zukro’s comment work for me :) The install process continue and finish but i don’t test yet if everything works fine.

  78. 106 ripp2003 April 17, 2011 at 9:09 am

    I would’ve thought that google had fixed it by now. Oh well, good job I came across this article.

    Cheers guys.

  85. 115 Lion May 23, 2011 at 9:58 am

  87. 117 naked hobbit May 25, 2011 at 10:38 pm

    Brilliant, did you notice that the android website doesn’t have anyplace to complain or request assistance?

    So what is Googles problem, this issue has only been around for 7 months now.

    Are the rest of the SDK tools going to be this buggy too?

  88. 118 kalpesh May 31, 2011 at 3:12 am

    I also faced the same issue, Noting to do just presh back button and once again Next it will find the JDK and installation success.

  89. 119 alonegun May 31, 2011 at 6:17 am

    The “back” and “next” trick really works!

  90. 120 Green_BiRi June 1, 2011 at 5:05 pm

    Many thanks, worked perfectly. This bug should be reported, altough. :)

  91. 121 Jamie Lemon June 3, 2011 at 9:05 am

    Wow – back and next really fast solves it!!!!! :)
    Why indeed did Google do that??!?!?!

  92. 122 Yoda June 7, 2011 at 4:13 am

    Simply, Click “Back” then “Next” …. Enjoy your install~

  93. 123 Kyle June 9, 2011 at 9:37 pm

    Hey,

    I’m using windows 7 64 bit and installed the java 1.7.0_03 verssion of JRE and JDK and had the same problem.

    I tried the “Back, Next” issue but it didn’t work.
    I solve the problem by reinstalling the JRE and the JDK as an administrator
    by right clicking on the EXE files an choose “Run as administrator”.
    after that the Android SDK installation found it with no problems.

    just had exactly the same problem in a similar environment.
    Solved by seeting JAVA_HOME variable

    I just set a Environment Variable named JAVA_HOME with the value: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_05\
    The problem is solved and sdk works properly.

  119. 154 Rashmi August 5, 2012 at 8:49 am

    Woah….. it really worked

  120. 155 Tojam August 25, 2012 at 3:28 am

    I had a similar experience on Windows 8 now. I had to install the 32 bit Java, then copy the “java.exe” to the C:\windows\SysWow64 node. THEN android was able to install. Afterward I installed the 64 bit java again and everything was fin.e

    Pressing “Back” and the “Next” DID NOT work for me…at all…and the fact that it has worked for some of you infuriates me. I want to get this stupid Twitter, Diner Dash, Doodle Jump garbage off of my phone!!! It’s eating up space with every update!

  122. 157 FATRAY November 1, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    The easy method no longer works “with me anyway”. Windows 8, installer_r20.0.3-windows.

    An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a coworker who was conducting a little
    research on this. And he in fact ordered me lunch simply because
    I stumbled upon it for him… lol. So let me reword this.

    … Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending some time
    to discuss this topic here on your blog.
