I have installed eclipse and the sdk. I have also installed the JDK 7u7. As of right now Eclipse still will not start i keep getting the you need a jre or jdk installed for it work. Not being able to heads or tails of the new comers cant get eclipse to start and trying to point eclipse in the right direction i am baffled. Since you know this is a problem why not just fix it?

Travis,

Maybe it should be C:\Java\jdk1.7.0_07\bin\javaw.exe, i.e., with a
backslash after the C:. Is that really where your javaw.exe is? Mine is
in c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0\bin

The (x86) in the path indicates that this is a 32 bit JDK. In order to
run Eclipse on a 32 bit JDK, you need to have a 32 bit Eclipse. Make
sure that you download the 32 bit Eclipse version and point the
eclipse.ini to the javaw.exe executable.

Android? SWT? What are you asking about?

You'll find great tutorials all over the web. My favorite are from
www.vogella.de and mkyong.com.
