I'm on Windows 10 running Eclipse version Photon. My machine did an auto update of Java last night which also automatically removed old versions of the JREs, leaving me with only the JRE 10.0.2. All my old JDK versions were untouched. When I run
java -version
I get 11.0.1, and running
javac -version
I get 11.0.1
Now Eclipse isn't running anymore. It says that it needs JRE 1.8.144. I can't find anywhere that this is configured. What do I need to do to have Eclipse run on my latest JDK install, which is 11.0.1 ?

After a bunch of head banging, I found it. The eclipse.ini file needed to be updated.

This seems like a fragile way to keep  this updated.

Carey,
I use a shortcut so the location doesn't keep changing. Then eclipse.ini points to the shortcut.
