I have suddenly begun getting this weird error when I try to debug any of my projects on Eclipse. I don't remember changing anything for this problem to start so suddenly.

'Launching <my program name>' has encountered a problem.
Cannot connect to VM.


Details of the error:

Cannot connect to VM
com.sun.jdi.connect.TransportTimeoutException


Further, in the console I get the following error:

FATAL ERROR in native method: JDWP No transports initialized, 
jvmtiError=AGENT_ERROR_TRANSPORT_INIT(197)
ERROR: transport error 202: connect failed: Connection timed out
ERROR: JDWP Transport dt_socket failed to initialize, TRANSPORT_INIT(510)
JDWP exit error AGENT_ERROR_TRANSPORT_INIT(197): No transports initialized     
[../../../src/share/back/debugInit.c:750]


Please tell me how to solve this problem. I have searched the whole web for an answer but to no luck.

I tried the following solutions which worked for other people:

Restarted Eclipse, restarted computer.
Change hosts file in etc\ - Remove the comments (#) sign before 2 lines namely,

127.0.0.1 localhost
::1 localhost


and restarted.

I read on another forum that a new version of the AVAST firewall could be a problem here.

Thanks

Sousa

After much stress and a lot of time, the problem is now resolved.

I uninstalled Eclipse and Java completely from my system.
I then re-installed the latest version of Java (I had this same version previously too). But this time I installed it in the standard directory and not the custom directory that I was using before. I then re-installed Eclipse (latest version again).

I also uninstalled my AVAST 2014 antivirus as people have complained that this was causing problems.

And just like that, it all started working normally again, Debug mode and everything!

I'm sorry you had this trouble. I never run Eclipse on the JRE used by
the rest of my computer--always on a private one. Eclipse doesn't use
"system environment variables". It looks for the JRE in various, obvious
places. I always tell it where to look via the -vm option in eclipse.ini.
