Issue installing Android SDK onto Windows 8

Hi… been a long time since I posted, work, life, … etc… interfering…

Thought I would share a qickie…

Unable to install Android SDK onto Windows 8 despite having already installed Java? Ok quick fix, no idea why, ask someone else, but rename c:\windows\system\java.exe or c:\windows\system32\java.exe or c:\windows\syswow64\java.exe depending on install to java.exe.orj" then run the Android installer (4.*) again should install ok onto Windows 8 🙂

It will pick up the Java executable from your program files instead and will install OK…

Remember to install Java 7.* first before installing current Android SDK!
