Windows 7 bug: nonexistent Java Runtime Enviroment

When I tried installing atunes and TED, I got the message “The registry refers to a nonexistent Java Runtime Enviroment Installation or the runtime is corrupted.
The system path cannot find the path specified.”

I fixed it up by opening regedit.exe and looking for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment

I deleted all the subfolders there and now all is well.

    Another thanks to you. I had problems after installing Java 8 update 101. DocFetcher, a file indexer and search tool, refused to start. The other fixes I found did nothing. But this worked immediately. Thank you again for this!

    I have a full Java development environment set up on Windows. I have all the environment variables set to and this was the only solution that worked. The symlinks were fine. It appears that the deleting these registry entries was the solution.

    Want to say that wheni did this, the program said to me “A Java Environment 1.7 is needed”, so i installed Java 1.8 (the latest) And changed the folder’s name in the regedit from 1.8 to 1.7, so i could run the program withouth further problems ;D
