After installing a new program (PDF Split & Merge), when I try to open the program, I get the following dialog box:

          Java Virtual Machine Launcher
     
          Error: could not find Java SE Runtime Environment

I went to the Control Panel, and when I click on Java, I get the following dialog box:

          Java(TM) Control Panel
     
          The system cannot find the registry key specified:
          HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment\1.6.0_24

I have installed other programs since this error message and have had no problems.  I have no idea what all this means or how to fix it. Java error message when opening program Java error message in Control Panel

The version depends on what version of your app you're running. Branch one is fine under even under Java 1.4
