Problems running eclipse on NT4 [message #23747] Fri, 13 September 2002 11:00 Go to next message

Hi!

I just installed eclipse on a Win NT4 SP 6a machine. Eclipse starts but I
allways get an error because the jevaw.exe tries to call "GDIGradientFill"
in "gdi32.dll" which is not Supported by Win NT (in none of its Service
Packs).
This is only used to get the gradient fill in the TabbedDialog which is
really nice to so but not needed. So can't I turn it off somewhere maybe
some commandline switches?

Thanks in advance
Tobias

Hi Tobias,

I'm running Eclipse (GM3) on WinNT 4.0 SP6 just fine.

What build of Eclipse are you using ? (so I can stay away from that one).

Perhaps you should try another jdk?

BTW, eclipse.tools is the appropriate group for these types of questions.

I'm using Eclipse Relese 2.0 and the Java SDK 1.4

Any idea on this?

Thanks

are you explicitly pointing to the jdk1.4 i your commandline/"shortcut to
Eclipse" ?

something like

"C:\Program Files\IBM\eclipse2\eclipse.exe" -vm "C:\Program
Files\JavaSoft\j2re1.4.0\bin\javaw" -data "C:\Documents and
Settings\Anders\My Documents\Eclipse_Workspace" -vmargs -Xmx384M

Okay, I tried it with a new Shortcut tu Eclipse but it didn' work :(
It seems there is a problem with the javaw.exe, according to the Error MSG.
It allways tries to find an entry point in the "gdi32.dll" for the
"GradientFill" Function but can't find it (since this Feature is not present
in Win NT4!).
I somehow need to tell the javaw.exe that there is no Function
"GradientFill" in "gdi32.dll".

I've tried it on a other machine quiet similar to mine and it worked fine
with no changes. I tried several SDK's (1.3.x, 1.4.0 and 1.4.1) and none of
them worked!

Anyone any Idea?
