Running IDEA 8.0M1 on Windows x64

I am having basic trouble getting 8.0M1 running:

cd C:\Program Files (x86)\idea8858\bin
idea.bat

I get: ERROR: cannot start IntelliJ IDEA.
No JDK found to run IDEA. Please validate either IDEA_JDK or JDK_HOME points to valid JDK installation

I've tried setting JDK_HOME to
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_07
and
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_07\bin
and I get the same error message with both.

What else can I try? Thanks!

Hello Massimo,

64 bits jvm's aren't recognized by idea.exe.

You have to launch idea with idea.cmd

More, you have to remove yourkit from idea.exe.vmoptions, or idea will give
an error on start.

idea.cmd? I can't find that file. When I run idea.exe directly, I get: "The EXE4J_JAVA_HOME environment variable does not point to a working JDK or JRE"

Also, what am I supposed to remove from idea.exe.vmoptions? Here are the contents:

-Xms128m
-Xmx1024m
-XX:MaxPermSize=256m
-ea
-agentlib:yjpagent=disablej2ee,disablecounts,disablealloc,sessionname=IntelliJIDEA

Sorry, my mistake. It's idea.bat (not .cmd).

-agentlib:yjpagent=disablej2ee,disablecounts,disablealloc,sessionname=


Remove this line. This lib only works with a 32bit jvm.
