There's another way if you don't want to have older Java versions installed you can do the following:

1) Download the iReport-5.6.0.zip from http://community.jaspersoft.com/project/ireport-designer/releases

2) Download jre-7u67-windows-x64.tar.gz (the one packed in a tar) fromhttp://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre7-downloads-1880261.html

3) Extract the iReport and in the extracted folder that contains the bin and etc folders throw in the jre. For example if you unpack twice the jre-7u67-windows-x64.tar.gz you end up with a folder named jre1.7.0_67. Put that folder in the iReport-5.6.0 directory:


and then go into the etc folder and edit the file ireport.conf and add the following line into it:



now if you run the ireport_w.exe from the bin folder in the iReport directory it should load just fine.
