    Default No JRE or JDK in JVM

    Hey programmers,
    I've been programming in java for not to long now but I'm starting to really get into it. Recently, I got an alienware 14 laptop with win 8. I think my problem is because of the win 8 but I'm not sure. I've tried installing eclipse which is what I've been programming in and the install runs smooth but once I unzip and try to open the .exe I get an error message saying No JRE or JDK found in JVM and it reads me the PATH file if tried changing the PATH myself and I can't figure out how. If someone could help that would be awesome.

    Sounds like you need to install Java and set your path correctly. Which part of that is giving you trouble?

    I have installed Java. I've tried reinstalling I've even tried the 32-bit install for eclipse but nothing. No matter what I install or what I set my path too it's just won't open and give me that message.

    Is that where your jdk is located? You can't just use paths from the internet, you have to use your actual paths.

    Well that's another thing is I've tried a lot of different paths and I just don't know mine exactly. After I unzip I basically lose the file. So once I install java should I just copy and past that PATH then??

    Default Re: No JRE or JDK in JVM

    Ok i found the right path and now it will actually begin to boot but then i get "Failed to load JNI shared library and a file address

    --- Update ---

    Never mind thank you for everything i really appreciate it. I found the PATH but i had tried downloading the 64-bit and 32-bit and set the 32-bit java to the 64=bit eclipse but i just changed it and it now works thank you
