I'm not sure. It might work if you add this line after the -vmargs line in the eclipse.ini file.

--add-modules=ALL-SYSTEM

You can also add two lines like this to point at a specific VM (if you still have Java 8 on your system):

-vm
C:/Program Files/Java/jdk-11.0.9/bin

I would expect '--add-modules=ALL-SYSTEM' to have limited usage in the future due to the outright removal of APIs that occurred in
Java 11. You're better off running 4.7.3 with a Java 8, or using the current release, 2021-03.
