Is your Windows version 64bit or 32bit? What launcher do you use to run PyCharm - pycharm.exe or pycharm64.exe?

If 64bit, download Windows 64bit JDK Windows x64 from and set JAVA_HOME to the folder where you have installed the JDK.

Or make sure to download the distribution with the bundled (64bit) JDK from

HI Sergerv

My windows version is 64 bit.

I am unable to know the kind of pycharm launcher when I see the properties of my " pycharm-community-2018.3.4 "  file ,

it shows 


seems like I have checked 32 bit while installing the launcher.

so now I have already installed 32 bit , how should I uninstall the settings which are earlier completely and install the 64 bit version.


if I just uninstall the existing one, and check the 64 bit launcher  while installing now will fix everything?

could you please explain me in detail


Thanks in advance

I believe the easiest way is to uninstall the current installation of PyCharm and then reinstall it from the link I provided above.

Make sure to check Download and install JRE... option during installation.


Toolbox App maybe helpful in managing your JetBrains IDEs

My windows version is 32bit and I get the same error message after installing and opening for the first time.

PyCharm 2019.* is running under JDK 11 which doesn’t support 32-bit

Unfortunately, there is no way to run PyCharm 2019.* on 32-bit OS.


You can download the 2018.3 version from or with help of Toolbox App. It supports 32-bit OS.
