It has been maybe a month or two since I last opened Eclipse but it worked the last time I opened Eclipse. I am not sure what happened since then but now I cannot open Eclipse without this message "No Java Virtual Machine was found after searching the following location:" I tried re-downloading both the JRE and JDK but that did not work. I then found a post on Stack Overflow suggesting I point Eclipse to the JRE and JDK in the eclipse.ini file. I tried searching my Eclipse file folder but I could not locate the file. If someone feels so inclined to hold my hand to help me troubleshoot, I would be most appreciative! Also, where does Eclipse save your project files and if I cannot open Eclipse how can I find what version I have? Thank you.

Just check the PATH variable has the path to your JDK or JRE in it's list. If not, append your JRE's path to the values in the PATH variable.
And then, try restarting eclipse. You can find the PATH variable by right clicking your MyComputer or Computer--> Properties--> Advanced System settings--> Advanced tab--> Environment variables.

Thanks and Regards,
