      I have a user who needs to install an older program that runs java. Whenever I attempt to install it I get an error stating “A suitable JVM could not be found. Please run the program again using the option –is:javahome <JAVA HOME DIR>. I uninstalled all instances of JAVA and reinstalled the latest version. The computer is running Windows 7 SP1. He has a laptop with basically the same configuration and it installs and runs fine. I am running the same configuration on my pc and it installs fine. Any help with this would be appreciated.

Thank you,
