Checking Paths in JavaFX

I get a “JavaFX Launcher Error”, “Exception while running Application” when I run a wizard created program. Based on Q&A on the Web, I think my problem may be due to the JAVAFX Path settings. When I go to Tools>>Java Platforms>>"Default JavaFX Platform">>JavaFX Tab, I find only "JavaSE" >> JDK1.7. There's no Path to JavaFX.

In NetBeans 7.4 they completely reworked the JavaFX platform stuff (to remove it as it was unnecessary and confusing).

You can get NetBeans 7.4 from:
