I had a similar issue. I don't propose this as a solution. Someone who actually understands the system should do that. What I did was change the code so that java command had a full pathname (53 as I understand it indicates that I cannot find the thing it is supposed to be executing)
JavaCommand = "c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_67\bin\java.exe " & javaoptions _
After that it worked fine.
Given that this fixed the problem for me: what was the real cause of the problem? I would presume that the original code was fine and that I have a setup issue somewhere at fault, but those things are a royal nuisance to deal with. This was easier for me that wading through all those setups (I don't know I can even account for many of them).
