Eclipse hangs when executed [message #1426931] Fri, 19 September 2014 12:48 Go to next message

Using Win7 64bit, Eclipse 64bit and JDK7 64bit.

I have -vm C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_67\bin\javaw.exe in eclipse.ini and that is where my JDK is.

When I doubleclick eclipse.exe nothing happens, but my mouse cursor turns into the loading one whenever I mouse over the folder content of the eclipse root folder.

Task manager shows an unstoppable eclipse.exe process taking 96K of memory.
Whenever I open eclipse another time, another process appears.

Unpacked with Winrar to desktop.

How should I proceed with why is this happening?

In eclipse.ini, did you make sure to place -vm and the path to java.exe on 2 separate lines, as detailed on the wiki page?

Yes, I tried that, but, the result was the same no matter how i put the -vm and where.

I saw that too, but please do it this way:

-vm
C:\jdk1.7.0_21\bin\javaw.exe

Yeah why would I even do it like that, my java in not there. And as I said, I did that and no change. I guess it's back to netbeans, since eclipse is so badly programmed.

Roll with it, Afa. You replace the path with your path. The point was
the format of the option in eclipse.ini.

Are you seriously so dumb or do you think me a total retard? Obviously this is a one in a million bug that will take more time and energy to solve than there's to gain from it. I'd rather drop the official android support and go with the user made plug-ins from Netbeans.
