Attached modified FlashBuilder.ini and FlashBuilderC.ini - that failed

Originally working FlashBuilder_Working_06_17.ini - but had slow performance.

I was able to run with this settings in FlashBuilder.ini and FlashBuilderC.ini :-
-vmargs
-Xms256m
-Xmx768m
-XX:PermSize=64m
-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true
-Dorg.eclipse.equinox.p2.reconciler.dropins.directory=dropins

Q. how could I make better performance overall and -Xmx as it errors the same way .
Machine RAM is 16GB and underutilised.

It is 32bit java you are running. It defaults to -Xmx1600m, so removing memory parameters will run it in maximum RAM possible under architectural limitations.
jgdvishnuSoftware ArchitectAuthor Commented:
1) From which line you concluded that it is running on 32bit java. I have 64 bit java too by default set in environment settings with JAVA_HOME and path="C:\tools\Java\bin". How can I specify that path at startup to take that Java.

2) As suggested with below configuration. the flash builder does not open any number of times I click.
-vmargs
-Xms256m
-XX:PermSize=64m
-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true
-Dorg.eclipse.equinox.p2.reconciler.dropins.directory=dropins

1. it will not work with 64bit java

2. Just make a try without java parameters?

So what should the FlashBuilder.ini look like.

-vmargs
-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true
-Dorg.eclipse.equinox.p2.reconciler.dropins.directory=dropins

Flash Builder took 3-4 min to load after click.
It became very slow and does not respond for long times after each click.
right click project and wait for 2 min. click build property and wait for another 2 min...

Do you have memory in your computer? It defaults to ~1.6GB
jgdvishnuSoftware ArchitectAuthor Commented:
Yes. I have 16GB RAM on my machine and 500 GB Solid State Hard Disk out of which 238 GB is free.

Try -Xms1g -Xmx1g (i.e allocate all ram on the spot)

My FlashBuilder.ini:-

-Dorg.eclipse.equinox.p2.reconciler.dropins.directory=dropins
