Has anyone installed the Android SDK Manager for Windows 8.0 ?

Android Studio and Java installed successfully.

When I click on the AVD Manager icon from the Android Studio tool bar the following is displayed:

"C:\PROGRA~2\Android\ANDROI~2\sdk\lib\find_java.exe" -s' is not recognized

I modified the environmental PATH variable to include a path to JAVA.

Java is installed. However the Android AVD or SDK  for Windows 8 is not installed.

I did a compatibility check. Windows 8 is not on the compatibility list.

The link to download the Android SDK for Windows 8 would help.

Thanks,

I downloaded the SDK right from the Android website: http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
Though I'm using Eclipse as my IDE.  What are you using?

I am using Android Studio.  I recently used the site you referenced and downloaded
adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20131030. (  http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html ).
However I have not installed it yet.

I also downloaded android-studio-bundle-133.970939-windows. I have not installed this one yet either. There have been so many attempts, that I forgot where this one came from.

I just downloaded android-sdk_r22.2.1-windows  
From http://www.windows8downloads.com/win8-android-sdk-vgdlxktr/download.html.

What is the release date for android-sdk_r22.2.1-windows  ?

I need the release that installs the AVD manager that is compatible with Windows 8.0.

Thanks,

I'm not sure why you would be downloading from a site like windows8downloads.com and not direct from android.  The android studio download includes the SDK.

Did you also see that Android Studio is in Beta?

Caution: Android Studio is currently available as an early access preview. Several features are either incomplete or not yet implemented and you may encounter bugs. If you are not comfortable using an unfinished product, you may want to instead download (or continue to use) the ADT Bundle (Eclipse with the ADT Plugin).

Given your situation I would seriously reconsider using Eclipse

This is confusing.  I simply need to Install Android SDK Manager for Windows 8.0.

As I said, the Android Studio was installed.

I need a link to any download that will download the SDK manager for Windows 8.0.

I went to this site:
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/webnotes/install/index.html


JDK 7 and JRE 7 Installation Guide

If you want to develop Java applications, download the Java Development Kit, or JDK. The JDK includes the JRE, so you do not have to download both separately.

I downloaded adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20131030  From http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html  

When I tried to launch Eclipse:

Error:  A Java Runtime Environment(JRE) or Java Development Kit (JDK) must be available to run Eclipse.  ...jre\bin\javaw.exe was not found in your current PATH.

What do I need to do?

Thanks,

Yes, I'm running Windows 8.

The JRE isn't enough, you need the JDK that you can (and I did) from Oracle. You should be downloading direct from the company that makes it not from cnet if you can avoid it.

The JDK you need:  http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html
This is also mentioned under "System Requirements" on the same page as where you download the Android SDK

ndicates which one to download
