    This application requires a Java Runtime Enviroment error


    Hi all

    I have a program that needs JRE to run. I've installed the last version of JRE both 32 & 64bit (1.8.0_102) on my Windows 8.1 Enterprise 64bit but when I try to run the program, would get the following:
    "This application requires a Java Runtime Enviroment 1.8.0_60 or higher 1.8.0_60"

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    I would check the environment variables to ensure that the PATH variable does not contain a pointer to an earlier version of the JRE. Make sure the PATH only has the folder for the currently installed version listed.

    No, there was no earlier version installed before at all. I am sure. I've checked the path variable and the only value related to the JRE is C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath. Now I'm really confused what to do.

    I assume you've restarted the computer or at least restarted the browser since you installed the JRE?

    Did you install the program before or after you installed the JRE? If after, I would try uninstalling and re-installing the program.

    You do assume correctly.
    I uninstalled the program, restarted my computer and installed it. But I've still the same error. Strange situation!
