jre 7 is probably installed in program files\java and not program files(x86)\java.


yep, in windows 7 64 bit you have c:\program files and c:\program files (x86). you can find java folders in both of them, but you must add c:\program files\java\jre7\bin to environment variable path.


installing a 64-bit version of java will solve the issue. go to page java downloads for all operating systems

this is a problem due to the incompatibility of the java version and the eclipse version both should be 64 bit if you are using a 64-bit system.


first, ensure that your version of eclipse and jdk match, either both 64-bit or both 32-bit (you can't mix-and-match 32-bit with 64-bit).

second, the -vm argument in eclipse.ini should point to the java executable. see for examples.

if you're unsure of what version (64-bit or 32-bit) of eclipse you have installed, you can determine that a few different ways. see how to find out if an installed eclipse is 32 or 64 bit version?
