I have installed Eclipse and Java Development Kit. I have also added the path to javaw.exe in the eclipse.ini file but still an error occurs on opening. Can you assist.

Thanks for the prompt reply. It appears to be related to the eclipse.ini file. An error 13 comes up with a lot of text from that file. I have attached a screen shot
Thanks again

Don't use MS word to post screen shots; upload them as standard images (png, jpeg, etc) if you want the most people to help.

Thanks for the advice. I have attached a jpeg image of the error that is generated when I try to run eclipse. As I said in a previous response it appears to be related with the contents in the eclipse.ini file.

Not sure why it's in ProgramData, but the most frequent cause of error 13 is a 32/64-bit mismatch between the installed Java and downloaded Eclipse. You can check whether it's actually a 64-bit Java by running its java.exe, from a Command Prompt window, with the -d64 argument, e.g. java.exe -d64

Thanks for the prompt reply. You are correct it was a 32/64 bit mismatch. Once I downloaded the correct 64 bit software I am off and running.
Thanks again
