Hello,

TL;DR: I'm trying to specify a JVM for launching Eclipse photon


I've read and tried all suggested solutions in this forum for setting up a particular JVM with the -vm in the eclipse.ini. I've also read this page https://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse.ini and eclipse has never started.

I've also tried to launch directly with :
- eclipse.exe -vm "E:\Logiciels\eclipse-jee-photon-R-win32\eclipse\jdk-8u131-windows-i586\bin\javaw.exe" -consoleLog .

I've tried with jvm.dll, java.exe, a jre...

So I'm wondering if there is an incompatibility with JDK/OS I use.

Configuration:
- eclipse-jee-photon-R-win32 (tried also with eclipse-jee-photon-R-win32-x86_64)
- JDK: jdk-8u131-windows-i586
- OS : Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard x64

Thank you a lot if you have a solution.

Best regards

In one of those cases, you are trying to use a 64-bit Eclipse with a 32-bit Java. They have to match. Are you able to
execute the corresponding java.exe from the command line?

Note that the Eclipse Installer will generate a -vm option for you (and will ensure that the bitness matches what you are installing). Have you tried the 64 bit installer?

Hello,

Right after posting this message I've changed the JDK for jdk1.8.0_121x64 and eclipse-jee-photon-R-win32-x86_64 and launched eclipse from the command line with the -vm option.

So after struggling 4 days, I just post a message here and it works..

Anyway it works (even if I don't understand why a 32bit eclipse with a 32 JDK doesn't work).

Thank you guys for replying :)
