I am evaluating Semantic Merge but it cannot find my JVM install, so it's just a regular merge tool. :( I am on Windows 10 64bit. I installed SM and then realized I did not have java installed. I installed JRE 8. No luck. I uninstalled both, installed JRE 8 first, then SM. Still no go. Oddly I don't see any other posts here about this, so I am wondering what is strange in my setup? Anyways, I would love to be able to use this tool, as it looks fantastic, so any help would be appreciated.

- We've seen Windows installations having a bad/corrupt/useless "C:\Windows\System32\java.exe" "tool" which is supposed to be like a "pseudo-symlink" to the latest JVM installed on the machine. That causes a failure.
Can you check if removing (temporally) this file solves the issue? You'll need to restart Semantic Merge.

- This option allows to manually indicate the custom Java path:

semanticmergetool.exe -vm="C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe" -b=base.java -s=source.java -d=destination -r=result.java

You can include this option in your configuration file.
