Bamboo on Windows Server 2008

Just trying to install bamboo on my W2008 r2 server (x64) and I get the message:

"The install4J wizard could not find Java(TM) runtime...."

When I click "Locate" and point it at java.exe, it says

"the JVM at <path> is damaged. Please reinstall or define EXE4J_JAVA_HOME to point to an installed JDK or JRE."

I tried explicilty setting the environment variable myself but still the same error.

I installed Java to day from java.com and it checks out Ok using the Verify.

Any clues?

I installed JRE and saw this same problem.

I installed JDK and the issue is resolved.

Confirmed; installing the JDK solved this.

For server installs, it is best to go with the JDK. The JRE often has a lot of quirks.

Same problem, same OS version. Both JRE and JDK (v 1.7.0_45) are installed.

end of nstallation log:

ERROR: Could not get DLL-Handle.
ERROR: Could not load functions

So...

I took another look at the JAVA installation and realized that it was the 32bit version.

Installed the 64 bit version and all went well.
