Error:No system java compiler is provided by the JRE. Make sure tools.jar is present in IntelliJ IDEA classpath.

Hello Everyone,

So I am having problems compiling an Adobe AIR app.  It's the default template when you first create an AIR app, and I am always assaulted with this message after hitting the Run button
The error says "Error:No system java compiler is provided by the JRE. Make sure tools.jar is present in IntelliJ IDEA classpath.".

I've got the IDEA_JDK path set to a jdk, and my Java apps work just fine, but for Adobe AIR no dice.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

What path do you use for IDEA_JDK? Please also attach the About dialog screenshot and idea.log/build.log (https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/entries/23352446).

I had this set as my IDEA_JDK path: C:\PROGRA~1\Java\jdk1.8.0_45.  BUT last night I reinstalled Intellij, and now it works so I guess I ran into a weird edge case of some sort.
