Screenshot of problem

I go to File > New Project > JavaFX Application
I assign the JavaFX platform to JDK 1.8 and hit finish
When I run the newly created project, I get a window titled "JavaFX Launcher" with the following message: "This application requires a newer version of the Java runtime. Please download and install the latest Java runtime from Then restart the application."

Please see attached screenshot.

The same issue occurs when making a new JavaFX FXML Application

I'm currently using NB 7.4 dev version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201306232301) but I have been experiencing the problem for a few weeks on previous builds.

JavaFX projects cause problems also when launched using JDK8 on Win7.
