Problem Installing Eclipse

Hi,

I downloaded Eclipse 3.5.3 and tried to run it. It's constantly popping up a warning console. The warning is attached to this post.
I use JDK 1.6.0_20.

What could be the problem with my installation ??

Why is it looking for JRE in eclipse setup ??


Cheers,

Added %JAVA_HOME%/bin to PATH. Is there anything else I am missing ??

It's now showing a different error. Attached the same to this post.
I just couldn't understand the problem with this Installation. I didn't have any issues with my previous installations.
Is it something to do with windows 7 ?? Because, that's the only thing changed from my side and of course the
JDK Version.

Can you check the .log file under \workspace\.metadata ?

I don't have any workspace created. I couldn't even run/instal Eclipse.
It's asking me to check the installation log and then quits.

The log file reads

Is it something to do with the latest version of JDK. I am using JDK1.6.0_20.

Try to remove the eclipse directory, and reinstall eclipse. Don't touch your SDK installation.

Dear Christophe,

I have done that 1o times. In fact have been doing since morning.
I just don't understand the problem. I removed the complete eclipse folder and then
freshly downloaded it from eclipse.org and tried to instal it. No matter how many times
I do it, it keep popping that weird message.

JVM Exited with code = - 1

what could be the reason for this problem. I have never seen this error before.
Is that something to do with the latest version of JDK. One final test. I'll change my JDK to
a bit older version and give it a go.

Do you have write permissions in the installation folder ? (I don't know how Vista manages folders). Try to launch eclipse using a different path for your data, like for example your home directory "eclipse -data c:\somewhere"

I have write permissions to where I have my Eclipse setup. As you suggested, I moved it to
some other location and tried. It's the same problem. I use windows 7.

BTW, I am tracking few other threads in different forums and seeing few suggestions to go back to
older versions of JDK. I think, this could be a problem. I'll give it a go and let you know the result.

The error happening in ConfigurationParser is strange. As a test, you could try to remove the "configuration" directory (this might make things even worse...).

Here it goes...

I just downgraded my JDK version from 1.6.0_20 to 1.5.0_22 and that just worked.
So, it seems there's some compatibility issue with new versions of JDK.


Once again.. Thanks for all your timely suggestions

Cheers,
Kalyan

Yes it is
But that is how it worked. I just started my career in web development and using IDEs.
So, some one like you gotta come up with reasons for these kind of problems.
