Android : Can’t open SDK or AVD – AndroidStudio

Recently , I got a chance to work on Android projects but while I was setting up Android Studio, I got error saying ” Cannot open SDK manager” / AVD  (don’t remember exact error line)

Solution – 1
Give full control to SDK folder for logged in windows user. 

Solution – 2

Manually create 2 directories under the SDK directory



The SDK and AVD manager should now be launchable.

Solution – 3

adding the JAVA_HOME environment variable pointing to the jdk folder (in my case c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_04) and adding %JAVA_HOME%\bin to PATH variable

Happy Coding 🙂
