I had a similar crash and starting eclipse with -clean option did not help. I ended up deleting .metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.e4.workbench file, which fixed this problem.

important If you save projects in workspace folder: back it up now

see How to run eclipse in clean mode? and what happens if we do so?

  • Open your task manager –> right click the javaw.exe process –> chose to end process tree (this will end all java runtime processes running on your computer).

Then go to your Eclipse folder –> configuration.settings and delete the org.eclipse.ui.ide.prefs file. Restart Eclipse and try opening your workspace again. This does the trick for me :) Beaware that deleting this file results in resetting your workspace history so when starting Eclipse you need to manually browse to your workspace location.

  • remove the workspace folder or rename it

My machine was slow and I try to close the eclipse . After few attempts eclipse got closed. After i restarted the machine , the eclipse was not getting opened and it was showing multiple errors.

I deleted the .\metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.jdt.ui\variablesAndContainers.data file and .\metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.e4.workbench\workbench.xmi file .

After which eclipse was working.

After nothing of the above points worked for me, I just checked the RAM usage in the task manager. To my shock, I found that, out of the 2 GB RAM that I have, I just had 100 MB left. Eclipse took like 1 GB from that. I killed all the other unwanted applications, and then re ran eclipse.

It simply worked :-)

Nowadays, when I run eclipse, I run it without any unwanted , RAM consuming applications

For windows user this folder is in workspace C:\Users\elminson\workspace\\.metadata\\.plugins

Go to your Workspace/.metadata/.plugins and delete everything in there. Eclipse will start and regenerate the folder and files.

score:8

thats right. you can fix this by just deleting or renaming this folder in your workbench directory - .metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.e4.workbench to .metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.e4.workbench.temp .
