The loader will download it's own version of java 11 so no need to worry about what you have installed.

You can install Java 11 alongside Java 8, please try doing that.

If you use java 11 only for Powbot , you can keep java8 in Path (environment variable) and run Powbot.jar from cmd with java11.
Something like 

path_to_java11/bin/java.exe -jar PowBot.jar

Or put that in a .bat file

Remove java11 if it's in the path and add bin folder of the java8  (like in the pic  but version 8).

Then if you want to use 11 for PowBot.

Create a text file and put (change your path if it's different)

C:\Program Files\AdoptOpenJDK\jdk-11\bin -jar PowBot.jar

Save it as PowBot.bat
