I found a thread for this same problem from 2007, but did not find an answer for it.
I'm installing sql-developer on a Windows7 machine. When I go to run the exe, I get the popup:
"Cannot find a J2SE SDK installed at path: C:\Program Files\Java\jre7."
I've downloaded and installed a couple of jdk's to fix this:
Can anyone tell me what I need to download to get this to work and where I can find it?
I realized we have another wiindows machine that runs sql-developer just fine. I copied the jdk-6u25-windows-x64.exe from that machine and installed on the newer one. The install complained that a new version of java was already installed. But, the older version works where the newer one did not - does not.
So I'm good. But it would be nice to know why the new versions do not include all the foo that seems to make sql-developer work.
