There are two methods to correct the problem for a 64-bit Windows user:

  • install only a 32-bit JRE. Perform a manual "offline" installtion of just the 32-bit JRE. Found here for JRE 1.7u45 downloads. or here for JRE 1.6u45 downloads.
  • force use of a 32-bit JRE by removal of the copied executables from the Windows system folders, and making an entry to find the 32-bit JRE installation location on system PATH variable.
Convention says use a JAVA_HOME variable, but appending the full path to the JRE bin directory is just as effective, e.g. append ";C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin" to the PATH variable.
