Dear reader,

Ever since I ran Windows Update, I can no longer start my Eclipse. I've tried downloading Eclipse anew and starting it but I get the same error message. I fear something is wrong with Eclipse Luna SR1 so that it no longer works on Windows 8.1 after a recent Windows Update.

The error message is in the attached file. Both the installation I already had, and the new installation I just downloaded today, end with the same error message. Eclipse simply will not start anymore. I've included the System Summary , System Information (includes HotFix KBs) and Environment Variables in attachment as well. If this issue requires more information on my system, I will be glad to provide it.

I have no real recollection about what Windows Update did, apart from what I consciously upgraded and that is SQL Server 2008 R2 (Express version), SQL Server 2012 SP1 (Express version) and Visual C# 2010 (Express).

Thanks for any input,

Kind Regards,
Tom Tempelaere.

I managed to figure out that due to the updates from Windows Update, somehow the JRE was now pointing to a 32 bit version on my 64 bit system. Manually changing the eclipse.ini to point to a 64 bit version solved my crisis. I still think it's a bit lame from both Windows Update (things suddenly breaking) and Eclipse (not telling me the obvious in plain text). Issue closed.
