Netbeans 6.5 JDK Not Found

If you are trying to install an old Netbeans version under Windows 7 64bit ,(Netbeans 6.5), you may encounter the following error message:
Java JDK Not Found
This is a known issue and filed as a bug under Netbeans' tracker but there is a solution.

The workaround is to manually extract the exe and execute the bundle.jar installer.
From the commnand prompt execute the following two commands:
netbeans-6.5.1-windows.exe –extract
java -jar bundle.jar
The first one extracts the installer from the exe while the other executes the installer.
