I actually don't know what to say because I try to search this file:

C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_31\bin\javaw.exe

and somehow it doesn't appear. How am I gonna fix this kinda problem?

    We'll need more information. Why do you want to search this file? What happened? Are you using any mods? Are you troubleshooting something? – 54D May 18 at 11:33

Java is a program that other programs (like Minecraft) are built on. If you can't find that Java executable, chances are the problem is:

  • You don't have any version of Java installed. You will need to install Java.
  • You have a different version of Java installed. The folder jre1.8.0_31 refers to Java version 8, update 31. Try going to C:\Program Files\Java\, or C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\ - do either of these locations exist, and is there another/different jre folder?

You need to install Java.

That is the default install directory, if you had actually installed Java, which you haven't.
