java.exe Requirement to run SQL Developer?

Hi all, I'm very new to this so pardon my basic questions. I recently installed Oracle 11g and it came with SQL Developer.
However, when I attempt to start SQL Developer from the Windows Start menu, I get a popup that says cannot find SQLDEVELOPER.BAT.
I have looked around for this file in the Oracle folder in Program Files but did not find it. I did find the sqldeveloper.exe.

When I double click on sqldeveloper.exe I get the following, a dialogue box pop-up that wants the full path name for java.exe.

What do I need to do?

Many thanks, -Nyssa
