this error usually occurs when a higher version of Java Compiler is used to generate the ".class file" than the JVM version which is used to execute that class file. So do not worry just download a "jdk1.7 full with Jre"(latest release) and compile your ".java file " again it will work .

Alternate approach - you can compile with "target" option to generate a class file which will be accepted by the older JVM.
