hello to anyone reading this..
i'm having problems with running eclipe on my windows platform. i was using netbeans from starting but now i think i better should know how eclipse works. so i downloaded it.
but whenever i try to run the program (on windows vista 64 bit), i get a message window, with many things/information, which i surely am not able to understand. (though i have a slight idea that it requires java 1.5, i have 1.6. so is this the real problem?) i'm attaching the screenshot. please help
current configuration: jdk 64 bit (latest) installed
jre (both 32 and 64 bit) installed
netbeans 6.5.1 installed (with glassfish v2, v3, and tomcat)
You say you have a 32-bit JDK installed? Then make Eclipse use it by identify the location of the 32-bit jvm.dll in the eclipse.ini file, like this:
I am also running Vista 64-bit and Eclipse does not like running with a 64-bit JVM, though if I recall from a while back it would actually run, I think on one of the 1.5 or early 6.0 64-bit JVMs, but I ended up with weird GUI behavior (missing scroll bars, stuff like that). Eclipse is much happier with a 32-bit JVM.
And a few other suggestion:
a) Get rid of the CLASSPATH - that is a sure-fire way to screw things up in the long run.
b) What is with the ".;" at the beginning of JAVA_HOME and JBOSS_HOME, get rid of that
c) I recommend not installing the JDK in Program Files - having a space in the path can trip up some Java libraries.
actually i said i have both 32 and 64 bit versions of the JVM not the JDK (which is only 64 bit).
and the eclipese.ini file is showing me something like this..
i then changd some part of the file to read as
but now when i try to run eclipse, it is saying..
A Java Runtime (JRE or Java Development Kit (JDK) must be available in order to run Eclipse. No Java virtual machine was found after searching the following locations:
