Thank you
Yes it works
Two Mistakes i removed.
1. Java version and windows version both must be either 32 bit or 64 bit.
2. I removed semicolon after setting variable of JAVA_HOME.


Android studio runs very slow.
I have core 2 duo processor, 2 GB Ram.
should i use eclipse with ADT package.
PLZ suggest me.


All I can do is nod. C2D and 2GB RAM will be slow. Should work but you may not be patient enough to keep at it. I suggest you focus on what you want to do and do not try to speed it up unless you want to pop in some SSD and more RAM.

I'm on some Lenovo y510 with i7, 16GB RAM and speed is acceptable.


8GB is reasonable start, but with 2GB is just no go. And eclipse will not solve your problem, and IDE abandoned by Google more then 2 years back
