Error launching Android Studio

Failed to load JVM DLL C:Program FilesJavajdk1.7.0_25jre.

If you already have a 32-bit JDK installed, define a JAVA_HOME variable in

Computer>System Properties>System Settings>Environment Variables.

I think you have a very old and incompatible version of Java Development Kit or JDK because you only have JDK 1.7.0 and the version required is version 6 and higher so there is really nothing you can do until you install a much newer version. When you install JDK it already includes JRE or Java Runtime Environment which means you no longer need to install JRE because it is already included in the package and will be installed automatically.

Download the latest version of JDK from Java Development Kit 7u51. To do it properly, after downloading this component, uninstall all Java applications then click Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and then Disk Cleanup. Select drive C and click OK. Check “Temporary files” and click OK. When Disk Cleanup is finished restart your computer.

Run the newly downloaded installer for Java Development Kit 7u51 to install the latest version of JDK. This should fix the problem. Remember that if you will be using Android Studio for some time, you need to stay in Microsoft Windows 7 and you cannot upgrade to Microsoft Windows 8 because this operating system is not yet supported.
