Java's being a *******. When I compiled it I told it to set the version to Java 7. If it's telling you that it's an unsupported version then it did not honor my request and is requiring java 8. I can fix it but it'll take a while as I'm working right now. Either wait or install Java 8.
bingo. thats exactly what i found with the error code. compiled with jdk 8. ill install 8 and see what happens for QA's sake
