Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine

I am on a Windows 7 64 bit computer on an Intel Core i7 5930K CPU with 64 GB Ram. The latest java version is installed.

When I run ImageJ-win64.exe. I get the error “Could not create Java Virtual Machine”

I downloaded an “all platforms” version of ImageJ, without a bundled Java or extra extensions.

I extracted it to my D:data drive. everything downloaded smoothly. I did this twice because I got this error after the first download.

I deleted the folder and all the files and rebooted between downloads.

Please tell me how to fix this error.

Have you read the troubleshooting page here:

The ImageJ.cfg should point to your JVM/JDK installation.
