Trying to play an old game, need JavaVM for Windows 7 (apparently).

Yeah, probably the least technical question ever posted on this forum. I'm trying to play an old WildTangent game called Dark Orbit. My laptop runs Windows 7. I found the game on (lucky break), but it refuses to run. After searching around for a while, I found a thread on the WildTangent forums about this game and the errors people are having; one post said "The error is mostly because of the old version of the WT Game Channel... and the game won't run because of the lack of JavaVM on Windows 7." Anyone have any ideas?

Here's a link to the thread, if anyone is curious.
