Java Error xlsread

I am using the GUI 3.8.2 version of Octave on the 64 bit Windows 8.1 using
32 bit excel 2010.  I am having trouble installing and loading the java
package.  I use the command to download it.  I also use the setenv command
before installing:
setenv ("JAVA_HOME", "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_40\jre\lib\amd64");

This is the error I get:
Error while trying to install Java package:
JAVA_HOME environment variable does not properly point to a JDK
  JAVA_HOME should usually be set such that either:
  (on *nix:)
    <JAVA_HOME>/jre/lib/<arch>/client/ contains (file or symlink)
  (on OSX:)
    <JAVA_HOME>/../Libraries/ contains a file libclient.dylib
  (on Windows:)
    <JAVA_HOME>/jre/lib/<arch>/ contains a file jvm.cfg
  (<arch> depends on your system hardware, can be i386, x86_64, alpha, arm,

Ultimately, I would like to use the xlsread command but even when I had this
working before it would not allow me to specify a worksheet for importing
data. Can anyone help?
