Spark 2.7.0 Beta 1 won't work with Java 7?

I recently tried Spark 2.7.0 Beta 1 (_online build), and it refuses to install because I "don't have a JVM".  Of course I do have a JVM, I have Java 7 installed.  However, it refuses to recognize this.  I got it to install by installing Java 1.6, but I cannot make it use Java 7, even after removing 1.6.


The installer gives this error:


<see spark_installer>


Spark gives this error:


<see spark_run>


Considering this statement:


About Java 7: Spark 2.7.0 will run with Java 7. Please interchange the bundled JRE (located at Spark-install-folder\JRE) against a Java 7 JRE or use the installer named spark_2_6_3_12555_online.exe and install Java 7 as default on Windows. Using Java 7 will stop Spark from stealing the focus, when a new message is received.


It seems I must be doing something wrong, but what is it?
