Installation issues with Groovy Grails Tool Suite



I installed java 1.8.51
Grails 2.2.1 and Groovy/Grails Tool Suite 3.4.0 Release
When I try to create a grails project here are the errors that I receive. I have a 64 bit windows machine

I have tried this countless times using other versions and this is the first time I can open GGTS without it first erroring. It errors when I go to setup the project. I am new to this so any assistance is extremely helpful
