A JVM Launcher is a program that starts a JVM running. java.exe is an example of one, but you don't have to use java.exe to start a Java application. You can write your own JVM Launcher. Here's one example of how to do it.

You'll probably also find this helpful

One of the interesting features your own JVM launcher could have is that it's free to run Java code in other ways than by invoking the main method of a particular class. It could call some other method, or it could even call several methods in different classes.

JVM launcher- is related to class path.

check out the path & class path settings where jdk has been installed.

once you set the java path properly, you wont get launcher error.
