Hi @mpmorris82. Two possibilities, (1) Java is not installed or (2) it is not included in your environment PATH variable.

You can download it from here: Java Downloads | Oracle

Also check your PATH variable (on windows you find this in Environment Variables) to see if the file path to your java /bin directory is included. If not add it and you should be good to go!
