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

  18. Alex · December 23, 2010

    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?

    • Eru · December 23, 2010

      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.

      • Alex · December 23, 2010

        Yep, it’s correct. Oh well, I’ll just do it the other way. Thanks anyway!

    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.

    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.

  53. Yuni · December 23, 2010

    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?

    • Eru · December 23, 2010

      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.

    can some one help

      Hi Gabri, maybe you could try Zukro’s method below, since he is using XP SP3

  57. zukro · December 23, 2010

    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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • tristam · December 23, 2010

      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.

    • BOS · December 23, 2010

      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.

    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.

  79. TimS · December 23, 2010

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

    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.

    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.

  134. Tojam · December 23, 2010

    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!

    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.
