Bug Description

I am running on a Windows 7 64 Virtual Machine. Sikuli version 1.0.1

When I have Java JRE 7 installed, and then install Sikuli, the install works without intervention, and I can start coding right away.

If I have Java JRE 8 installed, and then install Sikuli, the install can't find the default Java install location, and it asks me to set the JAVA_HOME variable. I just went back to the java 7 install instead of getting Sikuli and Java 8 to talk.

If you want to exactly control the used Java version with 1.0.1, then you have to use
<path-to-the-wanted-java.exe> -jar whatever.jar

or modify the related command scripts.

I will revise the command scripts to "know" Java 8 too.
