I've already replied to this but it's taking a long time appearing.

The answer is yes, I tried both the 32-bit and 64-bit sdk/jdk. when I give sqldeveloper the path to the jdk it simply blanks the entry box; when I give it the path to the jre, then I get the error message. Same behavior 32-bit, 64-bit.
