Cannot install Oracle JDeveloper on Windows 7, "CMD property not found in autorun.inf"

I'm trying to install Oracle JDeveloper 12c on Windows 7 but I get the error "CMD property not found in autorun.inf", when I run the file directly.
CMD property not found
If I run it from Oracle Installer (as Administrator), I get "corrupt" file, but I think this is misleading.
JDdeveloper corrupt file
googling this seems to always point to here, which says
CMD property not found solution
Previously, I had a compatability issue when installing Oracle Developer (Forms, Designer, Reports, and JDeveloper10g), I fixed that by saying it should be run as if on Windows XP SP2, and that did the trick. But I didn't see anything like this via google search.

Note: I have JDK 7 installed, and I've reviewed the Install instructions.

Note: I downloaded Java edition (not Java Studio). It wasn't an install, it just unzipped everything, and there's jdeveloper.exe, I clicked on that and up opens Oracle JDeveloper It looks good but doesn't have all the bells and whistles of JDeveloper Studio.

I downloaded it (java not on this machine) right click run as Administrator and it installed perfectly all 1.8G of it.

thanks for the nice video ! but it's still not working . . . I'm going to try on a third machine.

I was able to load Java edition (not studio), so I think my machine is ok.

I have also been wrestling with this on an Oracle board, no one seems to have the answer to the problem directly, it's just "try this", "try that", etc.

It's loading now on my third machine (Windows 7 Home) !

I'm also going to try on Windows 8

will let you know.

Got JDeveloper Suite loaded on windows 8 machine as well :-)

So something is obviously wrong with the two machines, although they both have other Oracle software and other non-Oracle software, both running Windows 7 Enterprise. Plus I have Oracle JDeveloper via Oracle Developer on one of the machines, and JDeveloper Java (not "Suite") on the other machine.

But could never get any direct insight into the core issue, "CMD property not found in autorun.inf".

But thanks for your advise and video.

I didn't really get the problem solved based on the error message, I moved to other machines and got JDeveloper Suite loaded. So the issue is my machines, but both have other Oracle software running . . .
The accepted solution's video did not work.

Below steps worked for me on Windows 7 Enterprise.

1) Installed JDK 1.7.0_75 Windows 64 bit and pointed my JAVA_HOME to that folder.
2) Extracted jdev_suite_121300_win64.exe to jdev_suite_121300_win64 folder. It creates 'Disk1' subfolder.
3) Give following commands after that, make sure open the cmd.exe by 'Run As Administrator'

C:\Windows\system32>cd C:\jdev_suite_121300_win64\Disk1

C:\jdev_suite_121300_win64\Disk1>java -version
java version "1.7.0_75"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_75-b13)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.75-b04, mixed mode)

C:\jdev_suite_121300_win64\Disk1>java -jar install/modules/ora-launcher.jar DISK
