Hi there,

This is probably a very silly question but I've been searching here and elsewhere and I can't find a solution.

I am trying to install Neon. I previously had mars. I've just reinstalled Windows 10. I installed the latest JRE and JDK. When I try to install neon it says
Quote:
Unfortunately the Java version needed to run Eclipse Installer couldn't be found on your system. You need the following version or a higher version:

Java 1.7.0 (64 Bit)



My java is in C:\Program Files (x86)\Java

Does anyone know what the default directory eclipse looks for the JDK and the JRE in?

It looks like you installed a 32-bit Java 8, instead of a 64-bit Java 8. Your 64-bit Java 7 install can not run Neon, unfortunately, because Java 8 is required. A 32-bit Java runtime can not run a 64-bit copy of Eclipse, either. You need a 64-bit installation of Java 8 (I'd recommend the latest 64-bit JDK 1.8 ).

I had the same error message "...correct java missing" and it was resolved by

CORRECTLY choosing the right java url to download:

Windows x86 188.32 MB jdk-8u101-windows-i586.exe (32-bit ** N0 **)
Windows x64 193.68 MB jdk-8u101-windows-x64.exe (64-bit *** Yes ***)

Good luck.

This problem have been resolved by adding or chabging variables in environment variables.
Go to Win7 -> My Computer - > Properties - > Advanced system settings -> environment Variables

1. If there is no variable JAVA_HOME, add it with value of variable to folder where your JDK installed, for examle C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-11.0.2
2. If there is no variable PATH or it have another value, change the value of variable to C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-11.0.2\bin or add variable PATH with this value

Good Luck
