BI Publisher : Desktop Installation

Ok so I have 64-bit windows 7, Word 2007 32-bit, 64 bit jrockit

I got an error installing the desktop - said I needed jre 1.6 or above.

So I went to - http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp and downloaded the latest version 7 64bit vm installed this and then installed the 32-bit bi desktop msi.

Everything worked from there.
