I am getting the following error message while launching eclipse on windows professional 64 bit. The error message reads as follows "Java was started but returned exit code=13". For the complete error message I have attached a screenshot image which can be of reference. I tried searching for a fix on the google but did not find any relevant once resolved on windows operating system.

Could it be you're trying to run a 64-bit Eclipse on a 32-bit JRE

I have downloaded the 64 bit from here www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/java-se-jre-7-download-432155.html and installed the same but I still see the same error message.

I recently installed an updated version of the jre for my chrome browser will that cause an issue. If yes, kindly let me know how to role it back to the previous version or access eclipse with the the earlier version. This command mentioned in here did not work for me. command: eclipse.exe -vm c:\path\to\64\bit\bin\javaw.exe. www.stackoverflow.com/questions/20763583/java-was-started-but-returned-exit-code-13-eclipse.

The best things I can tell you are these:

1) Follow the sticky post from the top of this forum:
https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/t/198527/

2) If you plan Java development, you need a JDK rather than a JRE. I
advise you to download, expand, but not install a JDK, the latest 7 or 8
as you wish, and keep it separate from the one your computer is running on.

This makes it so that you won't ever need to ask the question you've
just asked in this post.

I would also

a) put this "private" JDK on a path like /home/russ/dev/jdk1.7.0_71
(C:\Users\Nandan\dev\jdk1.7.0_71)
b) run Eclipse off it (instead of the one your computer uses)
c) tell Eclipse about it using the -vm option in eclipse.ini (see
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse.ini)

This will ensure that your computer can receive updates to its JRE
without affecting your Eclipse development.
