Remember that the control panel is looking for tomcat/jre/bin/javaw.exe. I don't know enough about how windows 32 bit vs 64 bit architecture interacts, but it could just simpley be that since xampp-control is 32 bit it doesn't recognize the 64 bit javaw.exe, even if it's running from the right path.

I agree with you! The problem should be the control panel 32 bit.

Do you think is in program a 64 bit version of xampp, or better, control panel?

There isn't currenly a 64 bit xampp_cli or xampp-control, however, I could compile a 64 bit build from the older available source code. Problem is the old code doesn't include tomcat, so I'd have to update it first, which I'm probably going to do anyway, since release of the current source code is not forthcoming. For now I'd stick with the 32 bit jre if you want to use the control panel. I'll update this thread once I've made some progress.
