    JAVA x86 in x64 Windows 8 Error


    Click image for larger version

    This error appears when I try to install 32bits version of java [j7u17]. Also I'm trying to run an old game that requires 32bit version however it fails to start java VM. Is this something Windows 8 can't do? any help would be great.

    thanks in advance

    PS. I tried uninstalling the whole java thing and reinstalling anew but still same error for 32bit version. It works on Windows 7 x64 Ultimate tho, but I want it in W8 all other java based games and applications are good ex.minecraft, Libreoffice, etc.

    It works on the Browsers [Firefox, IE, Chrome]

    Edit: Update

    Looks like this was the cause, I used this to try and have more stability on Modded Minecraft :
