Java RE installation on Windows 7 64 bit
Posted on 2011-05-11
I downloaded Java RE onto Windows7. During the download I got several "Java Virtual Machine Launcher - Fatal exception occured." At the time I knew that the installation was not right, but at the end it gave me a message that the "Installation was successful." I then downloaded and installed Eclipse. This installation was fine, but now that I try to open Eclipse I get the same "Java Virtual Machine Launcher" error.
What shall I do? I could reinstall, but I think I would get the same error.
The other thing I did was to download and install both the JavaRE 32 bit and 64 bit. 32 bit in the (x86) Program Files folder and the 64 bit on the "plain" Program Files folder.
I am assuming that if I open the 32 bit Eclipse it will know where to find the right JavaRE. Maybe that is what needs to be set in Eclipse, but then again I can't open Eclipse?
