    Windows 7 jvm.dll file failed to load error
    « on: November 20, 2011, 06:48:49 PM »
    I'm running Windows 7 64 bit on a custom built computer with 8 GB ram, AMD Phenom II 3.7 GHz processor, Asus Motherboard, and a 1 GB HDMI graphics card. 

    The program I'm trying to use is Eclipse 64 bit edition.  I have JDK and JRE v6 u29 installed to my computer.  When I run the program I get the following error:

    Code: [Select]
    Failed to load the JNI shared library "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\client\jvm.dll"
    My internet security is IObit Advanced System Care and Malware Defender.  I've tried reinstalling JRE and JDK 6u29 a few times as well as Eclipse.  All of the solutions I've seen on Google you had to pay for.

    in eclipse.ini,after:

    Code: [Select]
    org.eclipse.platform
    --launcher.XXMaxPermSize
    256m
    add:
    Code: [Select]
    -vm
    C:\Program Files\Java\<your jdk version folder>\bin\javaw.exe

      I can't seem to find eclipse.ini.  Where would it be located?

      The Eclipse install folder, by default; For example, I have Eclipse installed in D:\Programs\Eclipse. The ini file is D:\Programs\Eclipse\Eclipse.ini

        I don't have Eclipse installed, I was never given an installer when I downloaded from the site.  I just opened a zip file and extracted the contents.  Where did you download the installer at?

        the install folder would be wherever you extracted the zip.

          Okay, I added that but it still gave me the error message.

          What is "that" that you added. Did you make the appropriate replacements?

            I thought I was just supposed to add
            Code: [Select]
            -vm
            C:\Program Files\Java\<your jdk version folder>\bin\javaw.exe
            but when I deleted everything but that line and
            Code: [Select]
            org.eclipse.platform
            --launcher.XXMaxPermSize
            256m
            it worked.  Thanks.

            Well that's good. You were supposed to replace the <your jdk version folder> with... well, your JDK version folder. Not sure if everything will work alright with a funked path.
