Cannot use Android Studio SDK manager

+1 Rishi Mody · May 19, 2015
I just installed android studio..When i try to open the SDK manager i get the following error..I had set the path for JAVA_HOME already.(I followed the same steps as in the tutorials.)

Cannot launch SDK manager. Output:

ERROR: No suitable Java found. In order to properly use the Android Developer
Tools, you need a suitable version of Java JDK installed on your system.
We recommend that you install the JDK version of JavaSE, available here:

'"C:\Users\RISHI\AppData\Local\Android\sdk1\tools\lib\\find_java32.exe" -s' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
If you already have Java installed, you can define the JAVA_HOME environment
variable in Control Panel / System / Avanced System Settings to point to the
JDK folder.

i tried re-installing/downloading it again and then installing but it didn't work.
i also set variables such as JDK_HOME,JRE_HOME,ANDROID_STUDIO_JD like someone had mentioned in a post on a site but nothing has worked.

Did you ensure that you downloaded the 32bit JDK file from that website?

create the java environment in the system variables and not users variable,

@ian-yes it is the 32bit JDK file.

@eric-Getting the same error even after doing that.

ME Too cannot open the SDK Manager (which I want for Ionic). I press the button, I get a messages saying it's loading, a progress bar that fills and then nothing.
I've tried running it as Administrator and it makes not difference.
Any ideas?

Try this solution from stackoverflow.

1, Download SDK zip file from
2. Extract the zip file.
3. Copy and paste that extracted folder into Applications/Android Studio/
4. Open Android Studio. Go to: (Quick Start) / Configure / Project Defaults / Project Structure / (Android SDK Location) and browse SDK folder.
5. Apply and save.
