    SQL Developer Crashing on Launch


      Hi all,


      I'm trying to start using SQL Developer (version is the one currently available from the site, 17.4.0) without the included JDK. I've already installed an IDE for java development, and felt that the version with included JDK was unnecessary.


      Anywho, whenever I try to launch the launch the application in the root directory, the slash screen will display for a few seconds, and before completing start up, the application will crash and the process will disappear from the system.

      After poking around for a bit, I managed to launch an exe that had a console output.
      The application crashed again, and output three lines: a hex value and "ANOMALY: Meaningless REX prefix used"


      I'm running Windows 7 with JDK 1.8 previously installed. When I first launched the sqldeveloper application, I used the prompt to specify the folder that contained the jdk.


      Any help would be appreciated.
