Windows 7 64bit, Java 1.6.0_16 64bit Server VM - jedit4.3pre17install.exe unable to locate VM

Hello All -

First let me start off by stating that jEdit is fantastic tool, and that I use it religiously every day. I recently upgraded (installed rather, dunno if its an upgrade yet) to Windows 7 on my DELL XPS laptop and I'm having problems installing jEdit.

Java Version:

C:\Users\alex>java -version
java version "1.6.0_16"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_16-b01)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 14.2-b01, mixed mode)

JAVA_HOME Definition:

C:\Users\alex>set JAVA_HOME
JAVA_HOME=C:\java\jdk1.6.0_16

JRE_HOME Definition:

C:\Users\alex>set JRE_HOME
JRE_HOME=C:\java\jdk1.6.0_16\jre

PATH Definition:

C:\Users\alex>set PATH
Path=C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\java\jdk1.6.0_16\bin;

When I run the jedit4.3pre17install.exe I first get the Windows 7 box asking me if I want to allow this .exe to modify my system, and I say yes. I then get the jEdit language selector for the installer, and this also works fine (I can select languages, etc). Then I choose to continue and I get this error message:

"Setup was unable to find an installed Java Runtime Environment or Java Development Kit of version 1.4 or higher.
You must have installed at least the JDK or JRE 1.4 to continue setup.
Please install one from http://java.sun.com and restart setup."

Advice?

It's a known bug of the windows installer, that should be fixed in the trunk. So, You could try the latest daily build or take the jar installer.
