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?
