android-studio-bundle-162.4069837-windows.exe /S 

is installing Android studio to c:\program files\android\android studio. and SDK to %localappdata%\android\sdk.

In some forum it is mentioned to use /AllUsers to install SDK to all users.

I tried 
android-studio-bundle-162.4069837-windows.exe /S  /AllUsers
android-studio-bundle-162.4069837-windows.exe /S /ALLUSERS

But no use, it is installing to localappdata only.

And also even with /S I am getting screen as SDK missing on every launch even after configuring it.


Any suggestion.

  • I tried only studio installation without SDK with

    "C:\Users\uday\Downloads\android-studio-ide-162.4069837-windows.exe" /S

    And through shortcut launch I am installing the SDK to programdata and given full rights to all users to that folder.

    If I see the settings are in c:\users\username\.Android and .AndroidStudio2.3 folders.

    But the same folders if I copy to other user, it is taking the SDK folder as programdata only but giving prompt as SDK not detected and need to download again,even if I skip it and go to settings, it is showing empty there pointing to the same folder.

    Any suggestions?

This is a developer tool. Developers will inevitably whinge about some aspect or other of the deployment ("We want this bit, we don't want that bit..."), plus they will have local administrator rights so why bother packaging at all?

  • They want the sdk tools to be for all users so that multiple users on same machine no need to download it again and again. There is no support mail id also to contact Google on this..
