hi all, when I try to run eclipse using the command line:


it comes up with a message window that says:


A Java Runtime Enviroment (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: D:jdk1.5.0\jre\bin\javaw



Why can't it find the jvm?
thanks a bunch

Dan,
Glad to hear the problem is solved. Can you post a sentence or so on what the solution was? That way when others encounter this thread in the future, they don't have to struggle with the same thing.

Thanks,

well I feel really stupid about this but I had the path to the bin directory wrong.

It should have been:


instead of:


hope that helps somebody in the future!

Thanks Dan. That could easily be something that hits someone else.
