According to this page http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/server-jre8-downloads-2133154.html ,  the current version is Server JRE (Java SE Runtime Environment) 8u60.  You might find the version you are looking for here http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/archive-139210.html but the red letters point out that those old versions are not supported and not even updated with security patches.

Why do you want to setup that old version?

create a JRE_HOME environment user variable, point it to your selected JRE folder, in classpath make sure this JRE_HOME variable is before the existing declared JDK/JRE paths. Open a new command prompt window and execute java -version to check where JRE is pointing to.

Where did you get that tar gz file? tar gz is a Unix/Linux file usually.

You should get this one:
