hi,
I am trying to install Eclipse Neon versión in Windows 10 64 bits
I downloaded eclipse-inst-win64.exe and the installer said
"Java for Windows Missing
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)"
So, I downloaded jre-8u121-windowsx64.exe file and installed,
After It, I restarted W10, and tried again to run eclipse-inst-win64.exe,
but the same message appear:
"Java for Windows Missing..."
I read posts about It, but I can find solution.
Have someone passed a similar situation?
thanks in advance
Eugenio

The Windows native installer executable looks in the registry for all installed Java versions. What exact path is your Java installation located at on your machine. On a command prompt window, if you type "java -version" what does it print?

It seems that you're attempting to mix 32 bit and 64 bit Eclipse and Java.
Did you use the Eclipse Installer to set up Eclipse?

Do you still have older, 32-bit, versions installed?

Ed, thanks a lot for your answer,
I was far from PC and internet last days,
the command gets
java versión "1.8.0_121"
Java (TM) SE Runtime Enviroment (build 1.8.0_121-b13)
Java HotSpot (TM) Client VM (build 25.121-b13, mixed mode)
Have I to understand from this, that Java resides on Windows folder?
By the other side I found Java
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_121
Windows always surprises me, I have Java installed at
C:\Archivos de Programa (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_121
since It is "spanish" PC, but when I copy the link, It converts to
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_121 (??)
Eclipse files "are" in C:\Program Files\Eclipse but the folder is empty
Could be It the evil??
tahnks again
Eugenio

Andrew, thanks for the answer,
this is not the case, Java website found and tested versión correctly,
(only that over "Internet Explorer", not over Edge, because Edge doesn't admit plugins)
thanks a lot

The name "Archivos de Programa (x86)" suggests it's a 32 bit version. If it's 64 bit it wouldn't be in the (x86) folder. So it seems you really haven't installed a 64 bit version... It's probably best to install in your home folder somewhere or into a folder that you own, otherwise you'd need to run as administrator and are likely to run into other problem.

thanks again Ed for your dedicated time,
W10 is 64 bits, downloaded Java was 64 bits and selected Eclipse was 64 bits
I paid attention at that issue at download time
right now, before end this post I tested on java website, and Java says there was a new versión versión 8 update 131, so I downladed and installed,
After It and after restart W10, I tried again and Eclipse keeps without to recognize Java installation, again at Java website, Test for Java installation says Java is installed ok.
About "Program Files" versus "Archivos de Programa" folders,
until I understand, when I select "Spanish" language for an application, It will be installed at "Archivos de Programa" folder, by the other hand, english apps will be installed at "Program Files" folder.
I guess I can uninstall Java and reinstall at "Program Files" folder, since that during installation process It ask about choose an alternative folder.
thanks a lot
Eugenio

Windows 64 bit can and still does run 32 bit applications so you can install and run a 32 bit Java and a 32 bit installer. As a test you might see if the 32 bit installer runs. It's also the case that a 64 bit Java will install into "Program Files/Java" while a 32 bit version will install into "Program Files (x86)" and of course "Program Files" might be translated into whatever is appropriate for whatever national language. You could try to download a package directly from https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/eclipse-packages/ but those need Java to run as well so is likely to encounter the identical problem.
