When I launch eclipse 64 bit, I get the message "failed to load JNI shared library C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\client\jvm.dll"

I have 64 bit OS, Java, and Eclipse.

My eclipse.ini is as follows:

-startup
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.3.0.v20120522-1813.jar
--launcher.library
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.win32.win32.x86_64_1.1.200.v20120522-1813
-product
org.eclipse.epp.package.java.product
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256M
-showsplash
org.eclipse.platform
-vmC:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_07\bin\javaw.exe
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256m
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
-vmargs
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.5
-Dhelp.lucene.tokenizer=standard

So you are trying to use the JVM from C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_07\bin\javaw.exe and something still tries to find required libs in C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\client\, right? This might be as easy as a missing newline after "-vm" and before "C:\...".

If that's not the problem, are you able to run Java programs from a command line? Is that JVM at "C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\..." working?

It needs to be on a new line, e.g.:

-vm
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_07\bin\javaw.exe
