Unable to run SQL Developer 64bit on Windows 2008 R2 64bit

I downloaded jdk-7-windows-x64.exe and sqldeveloper64-3.0.04.34-no-jre.zip to install them on Windows 2008 R2 64bit.

I installed the jdk. I can see Java(TM) 7 (64-bit) and Java(TM) SE Development Kit 7 (64-bit) in Programs and Features. C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0 and C:\Program Files\Java\jre7 are there.

I unzipped the sqldeveloper zip file into C:\PublishedApplications. Then I run the sqldeveloper.exe in C:\PublishedApplications\sqldeveloper. I entered C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0\bin\java.exe as the full pathname for java.exe. I got Java version 1.7.0 has not been certified message and click yes to continue. Then I got the error:

Unable to launch the Java Virtual Machine
Located at path:
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll

I can solve the problem by following the step provided in Post #8 in this thread Unable to find a java virtual machine. However, is this the proper way to solve this issue?
