How do I check the PATH?
I'm only running the 32bit version of Java because of this explanation from the Java site:
I don't use IE anyhow, but do I need to turn on that mode and then redownload the x64 version?
Why do I only get the 32-bit Java when I go to Java.com?
Java.com provides a Java version based on your browser and operating system (OS). If you are running a 64-bit version of Windows 8, you have access to 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Internet Explorer 10 on your system. The desktop version of the Windows 8 OS does not run in a full 64-bit mode (unless you have Enhanced Protected Mode in Internet Explorer 10 turned on), thus 32-bit Java is the default.
