Most likely your Java and Eclipse bitness is different. Ensure that both
have 32 or both 64 bit!

I got the same problem(java was started but returned exit code=1).I once again unzipped the downloaded eclipse zip file(.zip) this time to a different location(root drive c:\).Then eclipse worked fine.I think in my case the unzip was the problem.This may fix the problem as in my case.
