Basic question I hope. I'm using the latest version of Intellij, and have the latest 64b version of the the Java JDK/JRE that I've set as my JAVA_HOME root.
Running the Intellij IDEA 1016.1(64) launch shortcut ("C:\Program Files (x86)\JetBrains\IntelliJ IDEA 2016.1\bin\idea64.exe") results in:
Error launching IDEA
The environment variable JAVA_HOME (with the vale of <valid path to my JDK v8 install>)
does not point to a valid JVM installation.
I've also tried changing my JAVA_HOME to the JRE location of this as well, still no go.
Is it expecting a 32b version of the JDK ? JRE?
Interesting, so if start Intellij using the idea.exe executable it works fine.
I'm confused. Can someone help unwind this?
