Android Studio Error on First Run (Windows)

After installing Android Studio on my new laptop and then running it for the first time, it throw a dialog box detailing error messages, a quick search on Google point me to this link Issue 172032: Android Studio Start failed with internal error and the “temporary solution” is simple, just edit file located in

C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\bin\

then add this text

and save, then try to relaunch Android Studio, it works like a charm 🙂

Note: editing file required Administrator privileges so you maybe need to launch your editor as Administrator
