Maybe old, but cannot start Minecraft over twitch

Hello and thanks!
After trying that nothing happened - so i found a thread about the Minecraft settings in twitch and found out, that the path was still set to the curse app.... so it might be possible, that i never played Minecraft since curse was imported to twitch.... but still delivers a similar error message:

You're still using old java.

You need to install and use java 8

According to your log the java that you used was not 8.

This is your log:
ApplicationName='/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk/Contents/Home/bin/java', CommandLine='-jar "/Users/Bonsai/Library/Application Support/minecraft/Install/game/launcher.jar" --workDir "/Users/Bonsai/Library/Application Support/minecraft/Install"', CurrentDirectory='/Users/Bonsai/Library/Application Support/minecraft/Install', Native error= Cannot find the specified file

This is where it states that you're using java 1.6.0

If you want this to work you need to use java 8

.... i got it so far.... what i do not get is: i deinstalled all older versions per terminal commands found on java website.
in twitch it says: settings / Minecraft / Java settings / Java version : Java 1.8.0.231 (64 Bit)
it even has now the additional argument "-version:1.8.0+"
but the modpacks in twitch still keep using the path to a folder that doesn't exist ...

mac's java control panel says Version 8 Update 231 (Build 1.8.0_231-b11)
i de- and reinstalled : twitch, Java, Minecraft, modpacks - nothing
i tried to change the name of the folder the same way listed in the error message (1.6.0.jdk) - nothing (changed it back)
i changed twitch settings to the listed stuff - nothing

i simply do not have a clue where it still takes that wrong path from

1.6.0 comes with your os, your on osx right?

Check the options tab on the FTB launcher and you should be able to select the right version from there.
