I am trying to work with Eclipse Helios on my x64 machine (Windows Vista) but it just doesn't cooperate. I have Helios EE x64 installed (latest version) as well as JDK 1.6.025 (x64) installed
I have linked my Environment Variables up correctly and tried to compile a java file through cmd and have succeeded.

Whenever I tried running eclipse i get exit code=13 (required java version=1.5)

I have tried running Eclipse with the

-vm "mypath\jdk1.6.025\jre\bin"

command as forums suggested

as well as other paths

-vm "mypath\jdk1.6.025\bin"

-vm "mypath\jdk1.6.025\jre\bin\javaw.exe"

even

-vm "mypath\jre6\bin" out of desperation
to no avail. I am all out of ideas and I wonder if anybody had this problem.
I even downloaded the helios x86 version and x86 JDK version yet it did not fix the problem. (I changed the environment variables)
now I changed everything back to x64 again but I'm stuck... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

(i have tried following versions of eclipse with appropriate JDK's Helios(3.6) (32 Bit and 64 Bit), Galileo (3.5) (32 Bit), Ganymede (3.4) (32 Bit) )
they all return the same error.

Java seems to be having problems with the ! character in the path. Try using a different directory.
