Android studio Setup

Posted on 2015-01-29

I've been trying to install Android Studio on my computer and it constantly says Downloading components.  It won't change from that status.  I've killed it and started it but the next button won't enable.

It's been like 2 weeks.

Any ideas?

When you are trying to install Android Studio, first you have to make sure that you launch SDK Manager, try right-clicking on .exe and selecting “Run as Administration”.  If the issue is still remain and does not start, fails saying components not installed.

I solved it by uninstalling it and reinstalling it.  Go figure.
