Jdk For Eclipse 64 Bit

The installation information provided is effective as of Ghidra 9.2 and is subject to change withfuture releases.

You must install a full JDK. Current releases of Eclipse require Java 8 or newer. If you are using Eclipse to do Java development, or are on macOS, install a JDK. In all cases, 64-bit Eclipse requires a 64-bit JVM, and a 32-bit Eclipse requires a 32-bit JVM. Which Java download should I choose for my 64-bit Windows, Java Archive Downloads - Java SE 7. Solaris SPARC 64-bit (SVR4 package), 24.05 MB. Solaris SPARC 64-bit, 18.41 MB. Download Java JRE 7 Update 72 (64-bit) for PC from FileHorse. 100% Safe and Secure Free Download 64-bit Software Version.

Platforms Supported

  • Microsoft Windows 7 or 10 (64-bit)
  • Linux (64-bit, CentOS 7 is preferred)
  • macOS (OS X) 10.8.3+ (Mountain Lion or later)

NOTE: All 32-bit OS installations are now deprecated. Please contact theGhidra team if you have a specific need.

Minimum Requirements


  • 4 GB RAM
  • 1 GB storage (for installed Ghidra binaries)
  • Dual monitors strongly suggested

Installing Ghidra

To install Ghidra, simply extract the Ghidra distribution file to the desired filesystemdestination using any unzip program (built-in OS utilities, 7-Zip, WinZip, WinRAR, etc)

Installation Notes

  • Ghidra does not use a traditional installer program. Instead, the Ghidra distribution file is simply extracted in-place on the filesystem. This approach has advantages and disadvantages. On the up side, administrative privilege is not required to install Ghidra for personal use. Also, because installing Ghidra does not update any OS configurations such as the registry on Windows, removing Ghidra is as simple as deleting the Ghidra installation directory. On the down side, Ghidra will not automatically create a shortcut on the desktop or appear in application start menus.
  • Administrative privilege may be required to extract Ghidra to certain filesystem destinations (such as C:), as well as install the Ghidra Server as a service.
  • Ghidra relies on using directories outside of its installation directory to manage both temporary and longer-living cache files. Ghidra attempts to use standard OS directories that are designed for these purposes in order to avoid several issues, such as storing large amounts of data to a roaming profile. If it is suspected that the default location of these directories is causing a problem, they can be changed by modifying the relevant properties in the support/launch.properties file.

Java Notes

  • Ghidra requires a supported version of a Java Runtime and Development Kit on the PATH to run. However, if there is a version of Java on the PATH that Ghidra does not support, it will use that version of Java (if 1.7 or later) to assist in locating a supported version on your system. If one cannot be automatically located, the user will be prompted to enter a path to the Java home directory to use (the Java home directory is the parent directory of Java's bin directory). This minimizes the impact Ghidra has on pre-existing configurations of Java that other software may rely on.
  • If Ghidra failed to run because no versions of Java were on the PATH, a supported JDK should be manually installed and added to the PATH. The following steps outline how to add a JDK distribution to the operating system's PATH.
    • Windows: Extract the JDK distribution (.zip file) to your desired location and add the JDK's bin directory to your PATH:

      1. Extract the JDK:

        1. Right-click on the zip file and click Extract All..
        2. Click Extract
      2. Open Environment Variables window:

        1. Windows 10: Right-click on Windows start button, and click System

          Windows 7: Click Windows start button, right-click on Computer, and click Properties

        2. Click Advanced system settings
        3. Click Environment variables..
      3. Add the JDK bin directory to the PATH variable:

        1. Under System variables, highlight Path and click Edit..
        2. At the end of the the Variable value field, add a semicolon followed by <path of extracted JDK dir>bin
        3. Click OK
        4. Click OK
        5. Click OK
      4. Restart any open Command Prompt windows for changes to take effect
    • Linux and macOS (OS X): Extract the JDK distribution (.tar.gz file) to your desired location, and add the JDK's bin directory to your PATH:

      1. Extract the JDK:
        tar xvf <JDK distribution .tar.gz>
      2. Open ~/.bashrc with an editor of your choice. For example:
        vi ~/.bashrc
      3. At the very end of the file, add the JDK bin directory to the PATH variable:
        export PATH=<path of extracted JDK dir>/bin:$PATH
      4. Save file
      5. Restart any open terminal windows for changes to take effect
  • In some cases, you may want Ghidra to launch with a specific version of Java instead of the version that Ghidra automatically locates. To force Ghidra to launch with a specific version of Java, set the JAVA_HOME_OVERRIDE property in the support/launch.properties file. If this property is set to an incompatible version of Java, Ghidra will revert to automatically locating a compatible version. Note that some Java must still be on the PATH in order for Ghidra to use the JAVA_HOME_OVERRIDE property. This limitation will be addressed in a future version of Ghidra.

Ghidra Installation Directory Layout

When Ghidra is installed, the runnable software gets extracted to a new directory we will referto as <GhidraInstallDir>. Below is a description of the top-level directories andfiles that can be found in <GhidraInstallDir> once extraction of the distribution fileis complete.

Ghidra Base directory for Ghidra distribution. Contains files needed to run Ghidra.
Extensions Optional components that can extend Ghidra's functionality and integrate Ghidra with other tools.
See the Extensions section for more information.
GPL Standalone GPL support programs.
server Contains files related to Ghidra Server installation and administration.
support Contains files useful for debugging Ghidra, running Ghidra in advanced modes, and controlling how Ghidra launches.
docs Contains documentation for Ghidra, such as release notes, API files, tutorials, etc.
ghidraRun(.bat) Script used to launch Ghidra.
LICENSE.txtGhidra license information.
licensesContains licenses used by Ghidra.

Running Ghidra

GUI Mode

  1. Navigate to <GhidraInstallDir>
  2. Run ghidraRun.bat (Windows) or ghidraRun (Linux or macOS)

    If Ghidra failed to launch, see the Troubleshooting section.

Ghidra Server

Ghidra can support multiple users working together on a single project. Individual Ghidra userslaunch and work on their own local copies of a particular Ghidra project but check changes into acommon repository containing all commits to that repository. For detailed information oninstalling/configuring the Ghidra Server see the<GhidraInstallDir>/server/svrREADME.html file.


Headless (Batch) Mode

Ghidra is traditionally run in GUI mode. However, it is also capable of running in headless batchmode using the command line. For more information, see the<GhidraInstallDir>/support/analyzeHeadlessREADME.html file.

Single Jar Mode

Normally, Ghidra is installed as an entire directory structure that allows modular inclusion orremoval of feature sets and also provides many files that can be extended or configured. However,there are times when it would be useful to have all or some subset of Ghidra compressed into asingle jar file at the expense of configuration options. This makes Ghidra easier to run from thecommand line for headless operation or to use as a library of reverse engineering capabilities foranother Java application.

A single ghidra.jar file can be created using the<GhidraInstallDir>/support/buildGhidraJar script.

(Back to Top)


Extensions are optional components that can:

  • Extend Ghidra's functionality with experimental or user-contributed Ghidra plugins or analyzers.
  • Integrate other tools with Ghidra, such as Eclipse or IDAPro.

Ghidra comes with the following extensions available for use (and by default uninstalled), whichcan be found in the <GhidraInstallDir>/Extensions directory.

  • Eclipse: The GhidraDev Eclipse plugin for a pre-existing Eclipse installation. For information on installing and using the GhidraDev Eclipse plugin, see <GhidraInstallDir>/Extensions/Eclipse/GhidraDev/GhidraDev_README.html.
  • Ghidra: Ghidra extensions (formerly known as contribs). See Ghidra Extension Notes for more information.
  • IDAPro: IDAPro plugins/loaders for transferring items with Ghidra.

Ghidra Extension Notes

  • Ghidra extensions are designed to be installed and uninstalled from the Ghidra front-end GUI:

    1. Click File → Install Extensions..
    2. Check boxes to install extensions; uncheck boxes to uninstall extensions
    3. Restart Ghidra for the changes to take effect
  • Extensions installed from the Ghidra front-end GUI get installed at <UserDir>/.ghidra/.ghidra-[version]/Extensions.
  • It is possible to install Ghidra extensions directly into the Ghidra installation directory. This may be required if a system administrator is managing extensions for multiple users that all use a shared installation of Ghidra. It may also be more convenient to manage extensions this way if a Ghidra installation is only ever used headlessly.

    To install an extension in these cases, simply extract the desired Ghidra extension archive file(s) to the <GhidraInstallDir>/Ghidra/Extensions directory. For example, on Linux or macOS:

    1. Set current directory to the Ghidra installed-extensions directory:
    2. cd <GhidraInstallDir>/Ghidra/Extensions
    3. Extract desired extension archive file(s) to the current directory:
    4. unzip ././Extensions/Ghidra/<extension>.zip
    5. The extension(s) will be installed the next time Ghidra is started.

    To uninstall extensions, simply delete the extracted extension directories from <GhidraInstallDir>/Ghidra/Extensions. The extension(s) will be uninstalled the next time Ghidra is started.

    NOTE: It may not be possible to uninstall an extension in this manner if there is an instance of Ghidra running that holds a file lock on the extension directory that is trying to be deleted.

Ghidra Development


Users can extend the functionality of Ghidra through the development of custom Ghidra scripts,plugins, analyzers, etc.

Ghidra supports development in Eclipse by providing a custom Eclipse plugin calledGhidraDev, which can be found in the <GhidraInstallDir>/Extensions/Eclipsedirectory. For more information on installing and using the GhidraDev Eclipse plugin, see<GhidraInstallDir>/Extensions/Eclipse/GhidraDev/GhidraDev_README.html.

NOTE: Eclipse is not provided with Ghidra. The GhidraDev Eclipse plugin is designed tobe installed in a pre-existing Eclipse installation.

Upgrade Instructions

General Upgrade Instructions

  1. !!!Important!!! BACKUP YOUR OLD PROJECTS FIRST!! !!!Important!!!
    • Backup by manually copying the .rep directory and .gpr file from any Ghidra project directories to a safe location on your file system.
  2. New installations of Ghidra will, by default, use the saved profile from a user's most recent version of Ghidra. This allows any saved tool configurations to be automatically ported to new projects. However, this may also prevent new tool options and features from automatically being configured in some cases. To open new tools containing the latest configurations, users should, from the Project Manager Window, choose Tools → Default Tools..
  3. When you open a program that was created using a previous version of Ghidra, you will be prompted to upgrade the program before it can be opened. The upgrade will not overwrite your old file until you save it. If you save it (to its original file), you will no longer be able to open it using an older version of Ghidra. You could, however, choose to perform a “Save As” instead, creating a new file and leaving the old version unchanged. Be very careful about upgrading shared program files since everyone accessing the file must also upgrade their Ghidra installation.

Server Upgrade Instructions

  • Please refer to the<GhidraInstallDir>/server/svrREADME.html file for details on upgrading your Ghidra Server.

Troubleshooting & Help

Launching Ghidra

When launching Ghidra with the provided scripts in <GhidraInstallDir> and<GhidraInstallDir>/support, you may encounter the following error messages:

  • Problem: Java runtime not found.
    • Solution: A Java runtime (java/java.exe) is required to be on the system PATH. Please see the Requirements section for what version of Java must be pre-installed for Ghidra to launch.

  • Problem: Failed to find a supported JDK.
    • Solution: The Ghidra launch script uses the Java runtime on the system PATH to find a supported version of a Java Development Kit (JDK) that Ghidra needs to complete its launch. Please see the Requirements section for what version of JDK must be pre-installed for Ghidra to launch.

  • Problem: Exited with error. Run in foreground (fg) mode for more details.
    • Solution: Ghidra failed to launch in the background and the error message describing the cause of the failure is being suppressed. Rerun Ghidra in the foreground by setting the LAUNCH_MODE variable in the launch script you ran to fg. Alternatively, you can use the <GhidraInstallDir>/support/ghidraDebug script to run Ghidra in debug mode, which will also allow you to see the error message as well as additional debug output. NOTE: By default, running Ghidra in debug mode listens on

Using Ghidra

There are several ways you can get help with using Ghidra:

  • Tutorials and other documentation can be found in <GhidraInstallDir>/docs.
  • When Ghidra is running, extensive context sensitive help is available on many topics. To access Help on a topic, place your mouse on a window, menu or component and press <F1>. Help for that window/menu/component will be displayed.
  • When Ghidra is running, indexed help can be found under Help → Topics..

Known Issues for current release

All Platforms

  • Displaying the correct processor manual page for an instruction requires the installation of Adobe Reader 8.0.x or later. Adobe broke the goto page in Reader version 7.x. If a newer version of Reader is not installed, then the manual for the processor will display at the top of the manual. Using an Adobe Reader version later than 8.0.x works for most platforms, but some platforms and version of the reader still have issues.
  • Some actions may block the GUI update thread if they are long running.
  • Project archives only store private and checked out files within the archive. Project archives do not support server-based repositories.
  • When using a Ghidra server, all clients and the server must have a valid Domain Name Server (DNS) defined which has been properly configured on the network for both forward and reverse lookups.
  • Image base may not be changed to an address which falls within an existing memory block.
  • Language versioning and migration does not handle complex changes in the use of the context register.
  • Ghidra uses Java reflection in a manner that has been deprecated in newer versions of Java. It is expected to see Java warnings the about illegal reflective access, especially when importing new files. Future versions of Ghidra will address this in order to ensure compatibility with the newest versions of Java.


  • Older versions of 7-Zip may not be able to unpack the Ghidra distribution file if it contains any files with a 0-byte length. Upgrade to a newer version of 7-Zip to fix this problem.


  • Ghidra may not display correctly when run from a Linux remote desktop session that uses 32-bit color depth. Setting the remote desktop application's color depth to 24-bit has been known to improve this issue.
  • Some users have reported Ghidra GUI rendering issues on multi-monitor thin client setups. These problems are attributed to reported bugs in Java, which will hopefully be fixed in the future. Disabling the 2nd or 3rd monitor may be necessary to work around the issue.

macOS (OS X)

  • Building new Ghidra module extensions on macOS (OS X) using a network drive (including a network-mapped home directory) throws a Java exception. This issue is known to the Java/macOS community but a fix has not yet been released. See <GhidraInstallDir>/Extensions/Eclipse/GhidraDev/GhidraDev_README.html for more information on building Ghidra module extensions from Eclipse.

I am trying to get Eclipse v3.5 (Galileo) to re-run on my computer – I have run it before with no problems, but now I keep getting this error:

A Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or Java Development kit (JDK) must be available in order to run Eclipse. No Java virtual machine was found after searching the following locations:
javaw.exe in your current PATH

I’ve just done a fresh install of both the JDK and the SDK.

I have Windows 7 (x64).

What’s up with this? How do I fix it?

I can’t run any of the ipconfig / tracert / or ping.


Eclipse will by default try to launch with the default “java.exe” (the first one referenced by your PATH)

Three things to remember:

  • “Installing” a JRE or a JDK can be as simple as unzipping or copying it from another computer: there is no special installation steps, and you can have as many different JVM versions (1.4, 5.0, 6.0…) as you want, “installed” (copied) almost anywhere on your disk.
  • I would recommend to always run Eclipse with the lastest JRE possible (to benefit from the latest hotspot evolutions).
    You can:
    • Reference that exact JRE path in your eclipse.ini.
    • Copy any JRE of your in your <eclipse>/jre directory.
      In both cases, no PATH to update.
  • The JVM you will reference within your Eclipse session is not always the one used for launching Eclipse because:
    • You only need a JRE to launch Eclipse, but once Eclipse launched, you should register a JDK for your projects (especially for Java sources and debugging purposes, also in theory for compilation but Eclipse has its own Java compiler)
      Note: You could register just a JRE within Eclipse because it is enough to run your program, but again a JDK will allow for more operations.
    • Even though the default registered Java in Eclipse is the one used to launch the session, you can want to register an older SDK (including a non-Sun one) in order to run/debug your programs with a JRE similar to the one which will actually be used in production.

June 2012, jmbertucci comments:

I’m running Windows 7 64-bit and I had the 32-bit JRE installed.
I downloaded Eclipse 64-bit which looks for a 64-bit JRE.
Because I didn’t have the 64-bit JRE it threw the error, which makes sense.

I went to the Java manual install page (which was not as directly accessible as you’d like) and installed the 64-bit version. See “Java Downloads for All Operating Systems“.
That was all I needed.

April 2016: Steve Mayne adds in the comments:

I had to edit the eclipse.ini file to reference the correct Java path –
Eclipse doesn’t use the environment PATH at all when there is a value in eclipse.ini.


Just copy this file :

to Eclipse Folder

*note only tested for Windows


All the other answers about setting only the JAVA_HOME are not entirely right. Eclipse does namely not consult the JAVA_HOME. Look closer at the error message:

…in your current PATH

It literally said PATH, not JAVA_HOME.

Rightclick My Computer and choose Properties (or press Winkey+Pause), go to the tab Advanced, click the button Environment Variables, in the System Variables list at the bottom select Path (no, notClasspath), click Edit and add ;c:pathtojdkbin to the end of the value.

Alternatively and if not present, you can also add JAVA_HOME environment variable and make use of it in the PATH. In the same dialogue click New and add JAVA_HOME with the value of c:pathtojdk. Then you can add ;%JAVA_HOME%bin to end of the value of the Path setting.


Open up Windows’ System Properties from the control panel and hunt down the environment variables section:

  • Add a JAVA_HOME entry pointing to the directory where the JDK is installed (e.g. C:Program FilesJavajre6)
  • Find the Path entry and add the following onto the end ;%JAVA_HOME%bin
  • OK the changes
  • Restart eclipse so that it is aware of the new environment

Jdk 1.7 Download 64 Bit

Most Java tools will now be able to find your Java installation either by using the JAVA_HOME environment variable or by looking for java.exe / javaw.exe in the Path environment variable.


If you download the 64 bit version of Eclipse; it will look for the 64 bit version of JRE.
If you download the 32 bit version of Eclipse; it will look for the 32 bit version of JRE

What I did was to install the both the 32 and 64 bit version of JRE. You can get that from the SUN Oracle site. The JAVA site seems to automatically install the 32 bit version of Java. I guess that’s because of the web browser.


It turned out that all I needed to do was change the ‘path’ to:

C:Program Files (x86)Java;
C:Program Files

that did it 🙂


I have windows 7 64-bit, and I had this same problem with eclipse. To get it to work, I had to use internet explorer (64-bit version) to download java. This was the only way to get java to install a 64-bit version. When I used firefox to install java, it automatically installed a 32-bit version (so idiotic!). And The Eclipse 64-bit version wouldn’t detect the java 32-bit version.


Solution in a nutshell:

Right-click on My Computer, click properties, then advanced system settings, a System properties window will popup, under advanced tab, choose environment variables, Environment variables window will popup, under the System variables section , look for PATH variable, and edit the value, changing it (the version; jre6,jre7, etc) to whatever jre you’re using, e.g for mine: C:Program FilesJavajre7bin


Don’t worry i was also ruined by this error and fatal and when i got it i was so frustrate even i was giving to leave an android programming, but i got it, Simply first of all copy this code and paste in your system variable Under path …

C:Program Files;C:Winnt;C:WinntSystem32;C:Program

Now copy the “jre” folder from your path like i have have “jre” under this path

and paste it in your eclipse folder means where your eclipse.exe file is placed. like i have my eclipse set up in this location

So inside the eclipse Folder paste the “jre” FOLDER . If you have “jre6” then rename it as “jre”….and run your eclipse you will got the solution…


If the problem could’t solve with the above steps, then follow these steps

  1. Copy the folder “jre” from your Java path like C:Program FilesJavajre6*
    etc, and paste it in your eclipse directory(Where is your eclipse
  2. Go to eclipse.ini file , open it up.
  3. Change the directory of your javaw.exe file like

-vmF:SoftwaresLANGUAGES SOFTEAREAndroid Setupeclipse Indigo version 32 Bitjrebin/javaw.exe

Now this time when you will start eclipse it will search for javaw.exe, so it will search the path in the eclipse.ini, as it is now in the same folder so, it will start the javaw.exe and it will start working.

If You still have any query you can ask it again, just go on my profile and find out my email id. because i love stack overflow forum, and it made me a programmer.*


In your eclipse.ini file, you need to update the path to the VM to point to the same location where javaw.exe is installed on your machine. Kelly clarkson lourdes task chair plans.


Do not rely on the windows path variable because it gets changed in nearly every update. E.g. a chrome (32bit on a 64 bit machine) java update replaces the systemwide 64 bit JVM by a 32 bit JVM. Note also that this entry has to be the last one in the eclipse.ini, otherwise it does not work,And – as otherwise stated – the JAVA_HOME variable is NOT evaluated by eclipse.exe.

even if your has JAVA_HOME and Path configured valid,their may has this problem,so
the most simple way to do is open your eclipse.ini in your eclipse installtion folder


C:Program FilesJavajdk1.7.0_71binjavaw.exe

replace C:Program FilesJavajdk1.7.0_71binjavaw.exe with your jdk or jre `s path

Jdk For Eclipse Neon 64 Bit


Edited my eclipse.ini file to update the newly updated JDK. Previously I had jdk1.7.0_09 and updated now to jdk1.7.0_80 and eclipse threw this error.


A Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or Java Development Kit (JDK) must be available in order to run Eclipse. No
Java virtual machine was found after searching the following
locations: C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.7.0_09/bin/javaw

After updating eclipse.ini from,


Eclipse works fine.


make a batch file in the eclipse folder and write in it :



When I had such problem, in my case I had x64 JDK + JRE installed with x86 Eclipse. So installing of x86 JDK + JRE solved my problem 🙂 Also I created jre folder in eclipse folder and copied bin folder from my local path C:Program Files (x86)Javajre7 to .eclipsejre.

  • 64-bit OS–> You need: 64-bit Java and 64-bit Eclipse
  • 32-bit OS–> You need: 32-bit Java and 32-bit Eclipse

if you update your java version with default update in your 64 bit computer (and you have 32 bit browser), java will install 32 bit version. You should find 64 bit java version and install it.


I had a co-worker with this exact problem last week. He fixed it by installing the x64 version of Eclipse and the x64 JDK.

Edit: he reused his old workspace after installing the necessary plugins, so that should not be much of an issue


There is an easier way to do that. Just run cmd x64. Type cmd x64 to search bar in start menu ant you will find it 🙂 Or alternatively, you should set path to program files (x86) … For example C:Program Files (x86)Javajre6


Just Add the JRE PATH FOR Ex: C:Program FilesJavajre5bin in the environmental variable
Put “;” in between every path. Then click the eclipse.exe It will work….


The reason you get this error is because eclipse needs a JRE to launch, which it can’t find. The first place it searches is the current directory, then the eclipse.ini file and then finally the system path. So if the it can’t find the correct jvm(bit versions are different) through any of these three places, it cribs

The recommended way is to edit the eclipse.ini file and tell eclipse where exactly to look for the vm/jre, by including this line in the file:

[path to your java.exe] (which is generally under “C:Program FilesJavajre7bin”)

P.S. To edit the eclipse.ini, you may need to move the it, edit and then paste it back

First of all thanks to YouYou for his solution! I tried answer by YouYou (https://stackoverflow.com/a/14464653/801919). Initially, it did not work for me. Following are the steps that I needed to take to make it work:

  1. Initially, I did not have Java installed on my new machine. So, I had to install that (downloaded from: http://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp).
  2. I am running 64-bit OS. But, while downloading, I got the message which could help me in choosing which version of Java to download: Choose the 32-bit download to use with a 32-bit browser. Hence, I downloaded 32-bit version.
  3. Then, I followed the procedure mentioned in https://stackoverflow.com/a/14464653/801919, hoping to get the solution.
  4. I got some other error: Java was started but returned exit code=13
  5. Then, I installed 64-bit version of Java.
  6. Copied javaw.exe from that version.

…And Eclipse started working!!! Yaay!


Well this answer is to those who tried all of them others an still no luck, May this be Android studio or Eclipse i usually do this when everything else fails.

  1. Find your Android sdk folder and open the android.bat file with a text editor
  2. you will find some commands like these in the start of the file,

set java_exe=

call libfind_java.bat

Jdk for eclipse 64-bit free download

if not defined java_exe goto :EOF

  1. Change them to

    set java_exe= <the path to your java.exe file(can be found inside your jdk folder/bin directory)>

  2. find the lines

rem Set SWT.Jar path based on current architecture (x86 or x86_64)
for /f 'delims=' %%a in ('%java_exe%' -jar libarchquery.jar') do set swt_path=lib%%a

  1. Replace it with set swt_path=<the path to your respective swt.jar file, for x86 it is at sdktoolslibx86 and for x64 at sdktoolslibx86_64>
  2. Save and close the file and now you are good to go.

if after adding the C:Program FilesJavajdk1.8.0_92bin in PATH variable in environment variables the eclipse gave the same error

check eclipse configuration settings file that found in eclipse folder, you must see the same jdk path you have in C:program Files

I hope it help.

Did you recently update your JDK?


The JDK does not install a JVM in the default path.

Unless you need external tools to run like ant, the non-JDK is enough for Eclipse to run. The easiest way to install such a JVM is to go to http://java.com and let it install whatever it want to install.

Then double-click the Eclipse binary again.


set JAVA_HOME variable and ad JAVA_HOME/bin to evnrionment path variable.


I had the same issue (Windows 7 x64, 64bit JDK, 32bit Eclipse), and I found 2 solutions:

  • Install the 64 bit version of Eclipse (found by clicking the “Development Builds” tab on the downloads page.)
  • Install the 32bit version of the JDK.

Jdk For Eclipse 64-bit Free Download


I had the same problem. The easy way, for me to fix it was to install both the JRE and the eclipse as x86 or x64. When their bit type did not match, eclipse could not find it. So, if it is not a big deal for you to uninstall and reinstall in order to make them match, I would do that.

I ended up installing:
Java Runtime Environment (64-bit) and
Eclipse Indigo (3.7) (64-bit)

Jdk 1.8 32 Bit Download

Then it just works.


When I copied only javaw, the second error occured, there is not a java.dll file, when I copied it too, eclipse did not start, what I did was that I copied whole jdk folder to eclipse folder and renamed id to jre. Problem solved.


One problem is the conflict between the Eclipse-64bit version and our Java installation being 32bit version. This doesn’t get solved easily because the Java installation page doesn’t give the option for 64bit – it assumes 32bit and downloads and installs the 32bit version. To overcome this issue, please follow the following steps:

Jdk For Eclipse Oxygen 64 Bit

  1. Download the 64bit version by going to Java SE Runtime Environment 7 (this link gives us the option to download a 64bit version of Java). Download and install this.
  2. Now, trying to install Eclipse will still throw an error. So, we copy the jre7 folder from C:/program files/Java/ and copy it in our Eclipse installation folder.
  3. Now, we rename it to jre.

Install Eclipse.
