I'm using Eclipse Juno version 4.2.0 with CDT in Windows 7.
Eclipse worked fine yesterday but failed to startup today. Here's the log file. What may have caused this error and how do I fix it?

Hi,

From what I've seen it seems that the issue comes from an "incompatibility" between your JRE and the jar or a corrupted jar.
Does this issue occurs with another bundle of Eclipse? If yes, does it still occurs if you use another version of the JRE?

Quote:
Eclipse worked fine yesterday but failed to startup today.

Did you update your version of Java or change anything in the eclipse.ini file?

Regards,

Stephane Begaudeau, Obeo

No i didn't update the jre or change the ini file. Deleting the eclipse install and reinstalling it removed the problem.
