I've updated to the most recent version. When I press play, it loads for about 5 seconds and a message comes up saying:
Error 🙁 Unable to locate the Java runtime
When I click “show more details”, it comes up with the following:
Unable to locate the Java runtime. Error details: The system cannot find the path specified Filename on disk: javaw.exe Path: C:/UsersmynameDesktop
untimejre-x641.8.0_25injavaw.exe Exists: false
This file does exist, but not in the specified path. I have tried googling this multiple times, but still no avail. I have tried changing the path several times through the environmental variables in the control panel.
You are watching: Minecraft unable to locate the java runtime
Please help me. What could I be missing? What could I change the path to?
Will give gold to whoever is able to help me solve this.
EDIT: Issue solved. Thank you /u/TehNolz!

Might want to try reinstalling the launcher, since it's looking for that file in the wrong location. By default, that file is supposed to be in;
C:Program Files (x86)Minecraft
untimejre-x641.8.0_25in I'm not entirely sure if this is actually the cause of your issue, but it's worth a shot at least. When the launcher asks you which directory you want to install it to, just leave it as the default.

I have reinstalled it many times, both leaving it on the default location and changing it around, but thank you.

Aw, thanks. A promise is a promise!
New launcher? Edit profile, click advanced settings, enable JVM path option and select the correct location. On mobile so steps might not be exact.

I would, but I can't seem to find edit profile in this new launcher. It looks like this for me.
Run the launcher then try update it
