There are many issues with not opening an android studio in Windows. I will list some fixes below:

Reason for Android Studio Not Opening

There are many primary reasons for not opening an android studio; I listed some of them below to see which one of the problems you are facing and how you can fix it.

  • The launcher script uses a non-Java option
  • Java Home Environment Missing
  • Missing Microsoft C++ 2015 and .Net SDK

so we will try to check each issue and figure out why the android studio is not opening and its fixes

The launcher script uses a non-Java Option

We figured out that On specific systems, we discovered the launcher script uses an option recognized by Java [b/55267]. The problem might be an issue of not opening the android studio in windows. we will fix it in some minutes; follow as I mentioned below

Steps To Fix Android Studio Not opening #1

  1. Open the installation folder of Android Studio (e.g. C:\Programs Files\Android\android-studio, or C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Android\android-studio)
  2. find the “bin” directory in there
  3. Open a “cmd.exe” (command prompt) Holding Shift and Right Click and Cmd
  4. Type cd to the android-studio\bin folder and run “studio.bat”
  5. You will most likely see an error: for example, b/55267 is about the option -XX:+UseCodeCacheFlushing not being recognized
  6. Report the error, remove the line from the studio.exe.vmoptions or studio64.exe.vmoptions, and it should now work.

After That, try to open android studio; if it’s working, then good if not, you can use another method to fix the issue. The other way to fix the problem is caused because the JAVA_HOME environment variables are missing.

Java Home Environment Missing

the java_home environment can be seen in the android studio while opening it. It always failed to start because the java_home Environment is missing. We will try to fix the issue and see if it’s working or not. basically, after setting this, you will open android studio, so without wasting any time, let’s move into further fixes

Steps To Fix Android Studio Not Opening #2

Step 1: To open CMD, Start by searching for ‘cmd’ in the Start menu search box and pressing Enter.

Step 2: Now, change the directory to the Android Studio installation.

cd "c:\\Program Files (x86)\\Android\\android-studio\\bin"

Step 3: Type’ studio.bat ‘and hit enter. If the JAVA environment variables are not correctly configured, you should see an error message similar to the one below.

Step 4: Open Start menu > computer > System Properties> Advanced System Properties

Step 5: In the Advanced tab > Environment Variables,

set environment variable
set environment variable

Step 6: Add a new system variable JAVA_HOME that points to your JDK folder,

i.e for example C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_21.

Remember to set the JAVA HOME and JDK HOME environment to the correct JAVA installation location. In the majority of cases, a single variable should be sufficient.

Now follow these steps (This step is necessary because the newly set variable will not reflect  if you do not do so.)

  • Open CMD (Command Prompt) to ensure that the environment variables are correctly set.
  • Type echo %JAVA_HOME%
    • echo %JDK_HOME%
verify environment variable
  • Now we will change the directory to the Android Studio installation.

cd “c:\\Program Files (x86)\\Android\\android-studio\\bin”

  • Now Enter the command studio.bat’. The computer should now launch the Android studio, and you should see a screen similar to the one shown below when it does.
