Make sure you have 64 bit Java installed and set environment variable JAVA_HOME. You shouldn't have problems then

HuaMinChenBusiness AnalystAuthor Commented:
This is 64-bit Win 7.

I create JAVA_HOME environment variable (then have rebooted the machine) to point to
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_79

but have still got the same error.

Please open cmd.exe and post the result of the following

echo %JAVA_HOME%

OK. That's good. Now finally prepend the following to your PATH variable

%JAVA_HOME%\bin;

Open in new window

I've appended such to PATH variable (have then also re-booted the machine) but the same problem persists!

Can you please post the output of the following (hint: easier to learn how to copy and paste in cmd.exe)?

echo %PATH%

Open in new window

Ugh. That non-expansion in PATH is a bug ( http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-windows_install/how-to-use-programfiles-in-the-path-environment/48b23109-9fbc-47c5-a5d1-465773f94704?page=1)

If all else fails (e.g. trying some suggestions at that link [i'd like to hope the '!' idea works]) then you might be forced to hardcode the value, which kind of defeats the object of JAVA_HOME :(

How to hard-code the name? Thanks
