Resolving XMind can’t open after updating to JRE7


I recently noticed that XMind stopped working after updating to Java Runtime Environment (JRE). It gave an error stating

A Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or Java Development Kit (JDK) must be available in order to run XMind. No Java virtual machine was found after searching the following locations: C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\javaw.exe

I solved it by simply making a copy of the JRE7 folder (default installed underneath C:\Program Files (x86)\Java ) and renaming that copy to JRE6.  Worked like a charm.
