Do you know how to make or change environment variables?
Before running the Android Studio we need to set up an environment
variable to point to our JDK. From your control panel's System Properties
window, select the Advanced tab and then the Environment Variables...
button. Add a new user variable called JAVA_HOME and paste it in the path to
your JDK,

Go to Control Panel, Program Features and then Turn on or off WIndows features then Environment variables, Add new user variable with name JAVA_HOME and paste in the path of the jdk (C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_79) obviously the path won't be the same....

"The environment variable JAVA_HOME(with the value c:\jdk) does not point to valid JVM installation"

but i have installed java & JRE in same (c:\jdk) directory....please let me know how to fix this?

Java installs to C:\Program Files\Java by default.
Look there. If that is where your Java jdk1.8.0_66 (or whatever version you have installed) is then that is where your environment variable should point.

I don't have this environment variable on this PC. Probably because my Path environment variable contains a reference to it.
My other PC does use the JAVA_HOME and I created it following the steps in my 12/10/15 answer to Atif.
