Why have Eclipse and Spring Tool Suite stopped working on my Windows 7 64 bit machine?
Posted on 2014-03-23
Up until a day or so ago, Eclipse (Juno) and Spring Tool Suite were working fine on my Windows 7 64 bit machine.
Both Eclipse and STS are 64 bit installations.
Now, neither of the start up.
In Eclipse, the Splash screen flashes briefly, and then nothing.
In STS, I see the attached screen shot.
I have no idea why these stopped working. I did not install anything new.
Did something get corrupted on me?
I've got to figure it's something that's shared between the two installations (Java/JRE)?
As a caveat, my Android Studio stopped working as well.
What could be causing this?
I really want to avoid having to reinstall these 3 applications.
