Editing sasv9.cfg works for mine after manually changing all the paths containing "Program Files" or "jre1.6.0_24" to their 8.3 names.
1.Open your sasv9.cfg file under "<your SASHome directory>\SASFoundation\9.3\nls\<your language>" with Notepad
for instance, C:\Program Files\SASHome\SASFoundation\9.3\nls\en\sasv9.cfg
Of course, backup before editing.
2.Open command prompt window with admin privilege.
3.For each path containing "Program Files" or "jre1.6.0_24" (or other suspicious non-8.3 directory names you would try), type command
under its parent directory to obtain its 8.3 name.
For instance, type dir/x under C to obtain the 8.3 name of "C:\Program Files"
4.If the 8.3 name does not exist, manually create it using the command
fsutil file setshortname <"complete path name"> <short name>
fsutil file setshortname "C:\Program Files (x86)" PROGRA~2
fsutil file setshortname "C:\PROGRA~2\Java\jre1.6.0_24" JRE160~1
This works for my SAS 9.3 TS1M2 + Win7 x64 Enterprise. After maneuvering around sasv9.cfg I finally have my proc reg working. I hope this helps.

I have similar problem as Arsenio.
OS: Win7 (x64) SAS ver 9.2
In EG when I try execute Linear Regression by PROC REQ occuring ERROR:
ERROR: Unable to load the Java Virtual Machine. Please see the installation instructions or
Truly I did my best, searching Internet, changed lines in sasv9.cfg in my language directory as well as rest of SAS/SASFoundation/9.2(32-bit) directories.
Also tried to use older verison od JRE
