Issues with eclipse not starting or JVM Issues

This is usually an issue in the below scenarios:

(1)When you downloaded 32 bit eclipse on 64 bit machine or

(2)When you are using 64 bit java on 32 bit machine

Below are some of the things that I tried and worked out.

For Eclipse Juno:

SET PATH for 64 bit jdk.

SET PATH=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_31\bin

SET EXE4J_JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_31

SET JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_31

This will help you to start eclipse

You can also try eclipse.exe clean in case of windows.

By default you should have the below settings:

EXE4J_JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.7.0_10

Path=C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.7.0_10\bin

JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.7.0_10

Whenever any java 32 bit issue is seen ,point java home to 32 bit machine.

Another finding that I have observed is setting -vm argument in case of eclipse.ini

-vm
C:\Java\JDK\1.6\bin\javaw.exe
