Eclipse (Scala configuration) fails to create JVM on Win7 64-bit
Posted on 2013-06-07
I am setting up a VM to begin working with Scala. My machine runs Windows 7 64-bit.
I have installed Eclipse 64-bit as configured at scala-ide.org. Actually, I just unzipped it into c:\program files\eclipse.
I then installed Java 1.7. Since I was running 32-bit IE, the 32-bit version installed. Running into trouble with that (Eclipse insisting it couldn't find a JVM) I installed Java 1.7, 64-bit.
So I have 64-bit Windows, Eclipse, and Java. I added the 64-bit Java bin directory to my PATH variable. I also put that path in the eclipse.ini file.
When I start Eclipse, it says:
Error: Could not create the java Virtual Machine
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.
I read that this is usually a memory constraint. But Task Manager reports 2100 MB free.
Just in case, I changed
What am I overlooking?
