    Hello,
    I'm new to this forum (as well as to REW)
    I just update to the last Java8u191 release directly from Oracle
    I'm running on Windows 10 64 bits
    I downloaded REW_windows-x64_5_20_beta3.exe. It appears as 17212Ko in my explorer


    I try to install REW 5.20 beta 3 but receive warning about my Java
    "The install4j wizard could not ind a Java (TM) runtime Environment on your system.
    You can locate or download a suitable 64-bit JRE (mi, version 1.8 max version 1.8)

    if I try the update button
    "the bundled JRE is corrupted
    If you downloaded the setup file please dowload it again

    then a log adress" (attached as txt file 01)

    If I try the Locate button
    and point to the java.exe
    "The JVM found at C/ Program files (*86)>Java>jre1.8.0_191>bin /java.exe is damaged.
    Please reinstall or define EXE4J_JAVA_Home to point to an installed 64-bit JDK or JRE>

    then a log adress (attached as txt file 02)"

    Can anyone help, as I didn't find any relative topic in this forum..but may be I missed it
    Thanks by advance

    You need a 64-bit JRE, which will be in Program Files if you have installed one. Program File (x86) is the location for 32-bit programs.

    Hi John,
    Thanks a lot with this new version with Embedded JRE: I was struggling with Java because he installed always java191 in the same Program File (x86) (although my system is 64bits)
    No REW opens and I'll be able to use it.
    I'll report if any trouble
