API error when running mapreduce

I am kind of entering in despair with this since I need hadoop asap and yet I can't find the source of the problem. In the laptop I am using I have windows 8 and I followed this tutorial s to get Hadoop 2.3.0 to work (the tutorial is for 2.2.0 but I also tried to install 2.2.0 and the problem remains). I can install and start hadoop with no issues, but whenever I try to run a mapreduce job, either the given examples or something made by myself I always get the following error

I have no idea why this might be, since I am clearly using in my mapreduce functions the correct API and yet this error happens every single time, as I said tried to reinstall this twice and even use the 2.2.0 version but the issue remains, at this stage I am open to any suggestion of what it might be.

See Stackoverflow - Running Hadoop with single node configuration: Execute Hadoop with admin privileges. It seems that Yarn or HDFS need to create symbolic links.
I agree. Here's the link:
