java virtual machine version is too low


I downloaded the program SAP HANA express edition [] for windows 7, 64bits and when I tried to run it, a message comes out "java virtual machine version 1.7 is too low require 1.8 or higher."
Then, I updated the java version here [], but I still have the same problem. I have looking solve the problem at some communities without getting good results.

Can someone tell me what to do to run SAP HANA EE?

    Most probably the environment variables are not pointing to the correct directory path.

    Please cross check the settings for JAVA_HOME. Configuring JAVA_HOME is prerequisite.

    Please check the PATH environment variable (the same location, as for JAVA_HOME, should be in the PATH as well).

    Last but not least, make sure on the specified directory path in these variables there is the correct JVM version (1.8). Sometime the names for the folders are misleading and they contain JVM with different version. Please run java -version in the folder it self to confirm this.
