You can run the Java file directly here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP Download Manager\DLManager.jar

But if you want to fix it permanently you have to edit the file: C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP Download Manager\SAP Download Manager.lax

Open it with a text editor and change:\\ProgramData\\Oracle\\Java\\javapath\\java.exe

You have to change it to something like:\\Program Files (x86)\\Java\\jre1.8.0_45\\bin\\java.exe

Where the exact folder depends on your version.  I happen to have this version of java.  If you remove the double backslash and paste it into a file explorer you will see if the java.exe file is actually there.  Once you find the java.exe program and path you have to add the double backslashes back for the .lax file before you save it.

Once I saved this it worked fine using the .exe launcher.
