When I'm trying to open eclipse I'm getting this error in the image, and the eclipse won't open at all.

I figured out I could open eclipse tho if I run the jar file in eclipse/plugins folder
called:
org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.5.100.v20180827-1352.jar

for some reason it would pop up the normal work-space message and eclipse would run without any error...

I'm just confused why the original eclipse launcher not working if some1
could provide quick fix.

thanks!

You're trying to run a 64 bit installation with a 32 bit version of Java.

If you'd used the installer it would have opened this page:

https://download.eclipse.org/oomph/jre/index-handler.php?vm=1_1_8_0_64_0&pn=Eclipse%20Installer&pu=http://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse_Installer&pi=http://download.eclipse.org/oomph/jre/128x128.png

That would have helped prompt you to install 64 bit Java 8:

https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html

More details here:
