Eclipse-java-helios-SR1-win 32 Not Launching – Education Career Blog

1.I’m a new Android developer, still learning Java, who has installed the Eclipse-java-helios-SR-win 32 on my desktop.

2.I have installed the new Java SE 6 and the Android SDK. I use Win 7.

3.When I try to launch the Eclipse application I get the below error

A Java Runtime Enviroment(JRE) or Java Developmet Kit(JDK) must be available in order to run Eclipse.No Java virtual machine was found after searching the following locations:
C\:Users\User\Desktop\eclipse-java-helios-SR1-win32\eclipse\jre\bin\javaw.exe in your current PATH.

4.However I have already created this PATH in my System Variables!


  1. Your PATH environment variable seems to contain the actual javaw.exe executable. That won’t work. Remove the suffix \javaw.exe from the PATH.

  2. Not sure about Windows 7, but at least in Windows XP, after you change environment variables, you have to close & re-open your command-prompt window for the change to take effect (changes to environment variables aren’t propagated to existing, running processes).
