Android Studio for Windows
After downloading Android studio, run the .exe file. Here are the directions from the Android Studio website:
To set up Android Studio on Windows:
Select Start menu > Computer > System Properties > Advanced System Properties. Then open Advanced tab > Environment Variables and add a new system variable JAVA_HOME that points to your JDK folder, for example C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_21.
You’ll need the Java JDK, so might as well grab it now. Either the 64 or 32 bit Windows download, depending on your system.

Android Studio is ALIVE!
After you click finish you’ll see a loading box pop up you’ll begin to know very well after awhile:
