Hi

I am attempting to run Eclipse Helios on windows 7 32-bit. I have 32 bit Helios and 32 bit JDK.

I previously asked about this issue on the newcomers forum and it was suggested I ask here.

my original post: http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php?t=msg&th=172802& amp;start=0&

when I try to run Eclipse it will always crash by exiting without an error message. It will also hang if I try to interact with the workspace setting window.

I reverted to JDK 6 update 20 in case it was an issue with update 21 but it made no difference. Specifying the VM directly in the ini also makes no difference.

Here is the log:

Posted the following to the bug post:

I managed to fix the issue over the weekend, hopefully this is helpfully to anyone having the same issue.

-----------------------------
I had this same issue

eclipse.buildId=I20100608-0911

!ENTRY org.eclipse.osgi 4 0 2010-07-28 21:29:59.756
!MESSAGE Application error
!STACK 1
org.eclipse.swt.SWTError: Cannot initialize Drop
at org.eclipse.swt.dnd.DND.error(DND.java:266)
at org.eclipse.swt.dnd.DND.error(DND.java:227)

I have windows 7 32bit. I am using 32 bit versions of both jdk and Eclipse.

Issue persisted across Java 6 update 20 and 21.

I managed to fix the issue by removing the following software from my system:

Proxifier
http://www.proxifier.com/

Widecap
http://www.proxifier.com/

and
worldoflogs client <--------uses the JVM to run
http://www.worldoflogs.com/help/client/

I have been unable to re-produce the error by re-installing them individually
so far, however, removing these three programs definitely fixed the issue.
