Failed to find java.exe while compiling an unmodified java protocol script in VUgen


I am doing a POC on MQ for which I need to create a Java script. To begin, I tried to create a new Java Vuser script on 12.5 version of Loadrunner (VuGen). Unfortunately, when I try to compile the script to begin with (empty script having just the init, action and end methods within Actions.java, I get the following error -

"Failed to find java.exe.
Please add the <JDK>\bin to the path and try again. [MsgId: MERR-22968]"

This is after I installed jdk version 1.7.0_80 under C:\Java\jdk1.7.0_80\. I have also included the C:\Java\jdk1.7.0_80\bin in my classpath and my path environment variables. 

Previously I had even tried to install 1.8.0 version of JDK but that did not help. 

Can someone please help me here as I am have been struggling with this issue for last 2 days now. I have even tried the various recommendations on the forums such as installing LR and JAVA under C and not under Program Files, having jdk path only in path and not under classpath but none of them have worked. Your help would be much appreciated.
