Fix No JVM Could Be Found on Your System Define EXE4J_JAVA_HOME Error in Java

This tutorial investigates why the no JVM could be found on your system define EXE4J_JAVA_HOME error. Then, it also provides the possible solutions to fix this error.

EXE4J_JAVA_HOME Error Description, Possible Causes and Solutions in Java

Let’s understand the error and its reasons before moving toward the solution. We have installed Java 64-bit 1.7 and the EXE4J 64-bit version.

Whenever we try to generate a .exe from the EXE4J, we get the no JVM could be found on your system define EXE4J_JAVA_HOME error while running a program.

The following screenshot shows how we have set up an Environment Variable on our machine.

Why are we having this error, and how to resolve this? Let’s learn about them one by one below.

  1. We get this error from the JDK/JRE package version. We can fix it while configuring our EXE4J.

    Select/unselect Generate 64-bit executable based on your project requirements.

It can be found at the EXE4J wizard’s fourth step which is Executable Info > Advanced Options > 32-bit or 64-bit. If this doesn’t work for you, install JDK tool kits x32 and x64 on your computer or laptop.

See the following screenshot.

  1. Sometimes, the old versions of the JDK/JRE package cause this error. In that case, download and install JDK’s latest versions.

    Do not forget to restart your machine once you have installed them. All the changes will take effect once you restart the machine.

  2. There are some situations when having Java 7 installed on our machine but try to run Java-based application on Windows that needs Java 8 version. In that case, we get an error saying no JVM could be found on your system.

Remember, if the program is 32-bit, it needs Java 8 32-bit to be installed on the machine. On the other hand, if the program is 64-bit, it will need the corresponding Java 8 64-bit version.

So, ensure you have installed the compatible version of Java to run our program.

  1. Make sure you have created an Environment Variable correctly. The variable name must be EXE4J_JAVA_HOME and the variable value as C:\Program Files\Java\jre7.

    Recheck that you are pointing to the correct Java version.
