I am interested in doing some game development using Basic4Android. To do so, I need to install Java and the Android SDK.
I have installed Java 7. The following software is installed on my laptop:
Java 7 Update 7 (64-bit) Version 7.0.70
Java SE Development Kit 7 Update 7 (64-bit) Version 188.8.131.52
I then access and download the Android SDK Installer, which I am told is currently this file:
Upon running this installer, the Android SDK Tools Setup starts, which then tries to detect whether the Java SE Development Kit is installed.
I then get the following error:
Java SE Development Kit (JDK) not found.
Error: Failed to find Java version for 'C:\Windows\system32\java.exe':  The system cannot find the file specified.
It also says I should go to java.oracle.com to download and install the JDK.
There is a "java.exe" file in the C:\Windows\system32 folder with the date when I installed Java 7.
The file that I did download and run to install Java was
leading me to have the installed Java software mentioned above.
Can you tell me what I may be doing wrong? I am running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (64-bit) on an ASUS Laptop with an i5 dual core processor.
Thank you for any help you provide.
Addendum: I solved this problem. The instructions for Basic4Android say to install the 32-bit JDK, not the 64-bit JDK.
