See if %LOCAL_JAVA% and %SQUIRREL_SQL_HOME% contain expected values before this line executes.

LOCAL_JAVA should have the path to your new java installation ending in "javaw.exe".
SQUIRREL_SQL_HOME should be the path, probably in "Program Files" where Squirrel lives.

Supposedly versioncheck.jar is compiled in Java 1.2 which should run anywhere.

ErrorLevel 1 could indicate that the jar file is not found in "%SQUIRREL_SQL_HOME%\lib\versioncheck.jar", or that the javaw.exe in LOCAL_JAVA is not java version 1.6, 1.7, or 1.8. There should be a log file somewhere with the messages. If you can't find the jar file, you need to display the contents of LOCAL_JAVA and SQUIRREL_SQL_HOME just before this command is run in the .bat file to see what to do next.

I very strongly suspect that JAVA_HOME is not set correctly on your machine.

Subject: squirrel not starting after java update

Last week Dan Kimmel kindly suggested some changes
to squirrel-sql.bat that may help identify the problem
that started when I updated java on my windows 7
laptop and also followed the java update suggestion that
old versions be removed.

My first change was removing the "/B" option.

That apparently did nothing, so I added "pause" cmds
until I think I have located the failing line:

"%LOCAL_JAVA%" -cp "%SQUIRREL_SQL_HOME%\lib\versioncheck.jar"
JavaVersionChecker 1.6 1.7 1.8

The next line is:

if ErrorLevel 1 goto ExitForWrongJavaVersion

And this is the path the batch file takes.

From my Windows laptop:
Java Control Panel
General tab, click About, I see:
Java Standard Edition
Version 7 Update 45 (build 1.7.0_45-b18)

So, apparently this does not meet JavaVersionChecker expectations

but I don't know what to do next . . .
