Installing BlackBerry Tablet Simulator 2.1 fails with "Windows error 2 occured while loading the Java VM"

Installing BlackBerry Tablet Simulator 2.1 on Windows 10 fails with the error message as shown below.

---------------------------
LaunchAnywhere Error
---------------------------
Windows error 2 occured while loading the Java VM
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------
To fix this install x86 version of JRE (tested with jre-8u102-windows-i586.exe). Running the installer again will still fail. Workaround is to pass command line argument to the installer, like:

BlackBerryPlayBookSimulator-Installer-2.1.0-1032-Win-201209272349 LAX_VM "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_102\bin\java.exe" -i GUI

Run the above command on elevated prompt.

Tested on Windows 10 1511 (OS Build 10586.545)
