Seeing the popup dialog " Failed to create Java virtual Machine " when i run the Eclipse Halios launcher .
I am using eclipse-jee-helios-SR1-win32 .
Is it somewhere related to the OS that i am running ?
In my case it is - Microsoft Windows home addition using service pack 2.
It is also worth to mention that the standard edition start and works perfectly.
Please, advice. Thanks in advance.

Giving us your eclipse.ini here might help. In cases like this, it's
useful to know the bittedness of your copy of Eclipse and the JDK you've
wired up to it.

Solved the problem by starting Eclipse with the following command -

eclipse -vm "C:\Program
Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_21\jre\bin\javaw"

Hope this helps , Cheers ! Smile

It's usually considered a minimum to connect Eclipse directly to the
JDK/JRE via eclipse.ini. The file can't ship that way, obviously.
Clearly, we're not doing a good enough job alerting people that they
should do this.

Couldn't you bolt some code into the eclipse.exe that checks whether
there is a java vm available and if not, throw up a dialog bog to allow
the user to browse for one?
That's what Oracle's SQL Developer does.
