      Description

      Reading through issue MCL-5528 I applied the --workDir parameter to my Minecraft shortcut and it seemed to work as the original error went away:

      The game directory is invalid or inaccessible.
      Error details: The system cannot find the file specified
      Filename on disk: .minecraft
      Path: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft
      Exists: directory

      However, now I am receiving this error:

      Unable to locate the Java runtime.
      Error details: The system cannot find the file specified
      Filename on disk: javaw.exe
      Path: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\runtime\jre-x64\1.8.0_25\bin\javaw.exe
      Exists: file

      (They don't actually display %USERPROFILE%, just making messages more succinct)

      Is there a parameter for controlling the Java version that the Launcher uses?
