Can anybody help me to install eclipse for windows 7 64 bit?
I have eclipse 64 bit and jdk 64 bit but it doesn't work?
I do run eclipse without any problem, with a JDK6-64 bit on a Windows 7
(use the "
Windows x64" Platform option of the Java SE download page).
See my eclipse.ini here.
If your 'java -version' displays something like:
java -version java version "1.6.0_18" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_18-b07) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 16.0-b13, mixed mode)
, your eclipse should be able to launch itself without any problem.
From a new Windows 7 installation, you should:
Java SE 6 Update 35 jdk-6u35-windows-x64.exe then download and unzip
If you are going to install Android tools, be sure to set your environment variable for
JAVA_HOME to the JRE directory (C:\Program Files\Java\jre6) not the JDK. You do this from Control Panel Home||Advanced system settings...System Properties|Advanced|Environment Variables.
I managed to solve this issue, by : ->ensuring that i have a JRE installed ->Opened eclipse.ini with notepad or notepad++(or any note editor) ->type the following and save -vm C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.7.0\bin\javaw.exe it worked for me, hope it does for you too!!
You might find Eclipse runs better on JDK 1.5, particularly if you are not using the very latest versions of the 64-bit JDK and Eclipse Galileo.
What is the exact version of your Eclipse and JDK? See also this page for the supported target environments.
Make sure your Java was installed first (look JDK & JRE at Java Folder on :\Program Files and or Program Files (x86). If not yet, you can download it from Java official page. Visit java.sun.com (now redirect to Oracle.com). If Java already installed on your system, please put your Eclipse folder on your system root (where Windows folder exist). Example C:\Eclipse. Last, install necessarily SDK (ex: Android, or Blackberry).
At glance: - Install Java SE (Standard Edition) SDK 6 (JDK 1.6), better install both 64 and 32 if you are running on Win 7 (64 Edition) - Put your Eclipse folder on system root, eg: C:\Eclipse - Run your Eclipse.exe
If Eclipse window not appear yet, please get another Eclipse package. The package may corrupt or have been modified.
I have downloaded eclipse for Windows 7, installed "eclipse-jee-helios-SR2-win32-x86_64.zip" from eclipse.org/downloads and got an error when tried to install it on th machine. Then I found JAVA is not installed on my m/c So I downloaded the suitable version for this O.S. and issue is resolved.
So check whether JAVA is installed on your m/c first... then try to install eclipse
