    hi guys!

    I am getting started with Android development and bumped into a roadblock today. I am setting up my Windows 7 64-bit desktop as the dev environment. I installed Java SE Development Kit 6 Update 31 (64 bit) from the Oracle site. After installation, In command prompt when I entered 'java', it gave the response :

    Picked up JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS: -agentlib:jvmhook
    Picked up _JAVA_OPTIONS: -Xrunjvmhook -Xbootclasspath/a:C:\PROGRA~2\HP\QUICKT~1\
    Error occurred during initialization of VM
    Could not find agent library jvmhook on the library path, with error: %1 is not
    a valid Win32 application

    I thought the env variable PATH was incorrect and I promptly changed it to:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.6.0_31\bin. However this did not work as well. I did a uninstall and a reinstall, still did not work.

    Besides this, Eclipse 3.6 (64 bit) would not load and threw an error saying that it could not detect the jvm. I am suspecting these errors are related?

    Any suggestions? Would the problem lie in the CLASSPATH or _JAVA_OPTIONS variables?
