Eclipse install for Java EE not working in windows vista 64 bit
Joined: Aug 26, 2009
I am trying to install Eclipse 3.5.0 EE IDE on my Windows Vista 64 Bit
After I download and extract Eclpse and click on the install icon,
it shows a long pop up message with the below error,
jvm terminated. Exit code = -1
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion = 1.5
I tried by installing jdk1.5.0_20 and (jdk1.6.0_16 & jre6), still i am
getting the same error pop up window.
Also i tried to set the below path in eclipse.ini that can alter the
"default" JVM for the system
You must use a 32-bit JVM to run Eclipse in a 64-bit Windows environment. The eclipse.exe executable is a 32-bit executable and thus requires the 32-bit jvm.dll. The -vm setting in eclipse.ini must point to the 32-bit JDK (you can reference either java.exe, javaw.exe, or event the jvm.dll directly).
