When attempting to install Java CAPS 6.3 on Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit, the following error occurs:

    Title: LaunchAnywhere Error
    Could not find a valid Java virtual machine to load.
    You may need to reinstall a Java virtual machine.

The issue can be seen with the following steps:

    1. First we installed windows 2008 R2 64bit
    2. Install latest JDK 1.6.0_25 (64bit)
    3. Run the JCAPS install JavaCAPS-Windows.exe
    4. Shortly after this we get the LaunchAnywhere Error and when we click OK the install process ends.
