Hey, I just got a 64-bit computer. Now when I start MC and set the render distance to far, it says I have 32-bit. Why? I also can't launch MC with 64-bit Java, only with 32...

Yes. Why can't I play MC in 64-bit if I have 64-bit...

You can still use far render distance with java 32-bit, but if you have a 64-bit computer, it suggests that you use java 64-bit. It truly doesn't make a difference though.

As for not being able to start 64-bit Minecraft, I'm unsure of how to fix this.

Yeah that's what I mean actually. When I put render distance on far it says I need 64-bit, but I HAVE 64-bit... (computer + java)

You may have it, but you apparently are not using it.
If you play in your browser, then it will use 32bit Java if your browser is a 32bit application (even on a 64bit OS).

Are you positive that you installed 64bit Java?  When you go to java.com  it will offer you 32bit Java if you are browsing with a 32bit browser.

I'm not playing in a browser. And I made sure I downloaded the 64 bit java.
And when I try to launch MC it says this:

No JVM could be found on your system.
Please define EXE4J_JAVA_HOME
to point to an installed 32-bit JDK or JRE or download a JRE
from www.java.com.

Make sure you have Java.

Control Panel > Programs and Features > Java™ 7 Update 4 (64-bit)

If that is there, re-download the offline patchier for the 64-bit version and uninstall/reinstall.
If that does not work, re-download both versions (32 and 64), and uninstall both. Try just installing the 64-bit and see if Minecraft runs (and check the render distance for that message). If it does, install the 32-bit version since Firefox only comes in 32-bit. Then try Minecraft again.

I have Java 64 bit and this is what it says when I try to open MC:

No JVM could be found on your system.
Please define EXE4J_JAVA_HOME
to point to an installed 32-bit JDK or JRE or download a JRE
from www.java.com.

I have to say I used to play Minecraft on Java 32 bit on my old laptop. But today I got a new laptop and I got Java 64 bit.

So which is it?  Does it say A or does it say B?

I'm going home, I've got no patience for playing 20 questions on a Friday night.

What's the problem? I can't launch with 64-bit. When I do try, it says that. Was that so hard to understand?
