So in my efforts to start working with mobile devices one of the esseseties is Eclipse .

I’m new to this .

I’ve downloaded the biggest eclipse available from here .

For full list go to this link


So I’ve downloaded and extracted the zip . Pressed the eclipse.exe and..


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

What’s that all about ..

Started digging around and found this post at the stackoverflow .

I’ve done it all -  all the anoying suggestions about altering your path and building java home , and letting the decide for you what to install ..

Got dispeared and went home .

At last went on the suggestion about downloading different java for 64 bit at this link


Apperantly if you use IE that installed as x86 then it will install 32 bit java version that won’t work with 64 bit Eclipse .
