Is it possible to create a launch configuration or configure an installed JRE to use java.exe instead of javaw.exe?


they suggest to use a .ee file:

This doesn't work: If I create the file "" inside "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_67\bin\", containing one line "-Dee.executable=java.exe", then Eclipse itself runs in java.exe. However, when I try to debug something using a launch configuration, javaw.exe is started
