xampp cannot find current jdk installation

Postby Denisvg » 22. May 2011 22:01

On a windows 7 64bit machine, I have installed xsampp win32-1.7.4. I installed jdk-6u25-no-7_0. When i try to start the tomcat server (catalina_start.bat), i get the following error:
[XAMPP]: Searching JDK HOME with reg query ...
ERROR: The system was unable to find the specified registry key or value.
. [XAMPP]: Cannot find current JDK installation!
. [XAMPP]: Cannot set JAVA_HOME. Aborting ...
Press any key to continue . . .
I have checked the registry for the key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Development Kit, and it is not there. Do i need to make this entry? Do i need to install another jdk?

I was having the same problem. I was referencing a JDK installed with Glassfish and Tomcat would not start. I just downloaded and installed the jdk and everything is working. Hope this helps.
