If you are facing the same issue on NetBeans then in this blog you will find the best answer.

This problem has arisen because right now you must be using a different version of JDK. Make sure you can that out on your C drive: [C:\Program Files\Java]

How to Solve NetBeans “Cannot locate java installation in specified jdkhome”?

To solve this actual problem, make sure you edit the NetBeans Config file which is located in the following location;

C:\Program Files\NetBeans 8.2\etc

netbeans.cluster
netbeans.conf [Edit This]
netbeans.import

Note:  To edit that file I would recommend you to install editors like Notepad++ or Sublime Text.

Step 1: Copy that file on the desktop and Open it on any above specified editors and search for the following code.

netbeans_jdkhome="C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-11.0.1"

Step 2: Now on that variable “netbeans_jdkhome” you can see Java 11 has been defined. Change that location with the new one that you are currently using; For me, I’m using JDK 8, so I will go with that;

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_191
netbeans_jdkhome="C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_191"

That’s all, you are done solving this specified problem which occurs while using NetBeans for programming;
