Hi everyone,

I was working with Eclipse when I decided to update Java to it's lates version (8u25). I downloaded the latest version of Java, installed it and now everytime I click on the Run button in Eclipse, i get this error message:

Unable to locate executable for jre1.8.0_20 (I attach a picture of the error message).

Is there any way I can fix this issue without reinstalling Eclipse?

Thanks in advance,

reinstalling wouldn't fix this.

Go to Run -> Run Configurations -> Java Applications -> [Your App Name], check the JRE tab. It's probably invalid as Eclipse still references to JRE 8u20 which is now non-existent. You may need to redefine it in preferences.
