I just started learning to code a few months ago, and this program was recommended as a good way to put out simple apps. My computer is running Windows 8.1 (it's actually an HP Pavilion G6 - which predates Windows 8. ) Windows 8 has a "desktop" page that acts more or less the same as a Windows 7's desktop. You put Java on the system, and for a lot of programs, you can just download Windows 7, 64-bit stuff. It runs slow but it does run. I was hoping this would work for this program too, but I can't tell what this error is about - is there something I need to download to fix it? Or will it not run in Windows 8?

To be clear, when I click open on the application file, it just pops this up. The actual program won't start.

Read the "sticky" post at the top of this forum titled, "Eclipse won't start? READ THIS FIRST"

Are you not trying to run a 64-bit Eclipse on a 32-bit JRE? They must match.
