Hi All,

I was trying to install ecllipse in my system. When I try to run the Ecllipse, Im getting the below error message

Version1.4.2_03 of the JVM is not Suitable this Product. Version 1.5 or greater is required.

I have got Java 1.5 installed in the system. But when I checked my system, my path is set to point to Java 1.5 still it is throwing the errors.

Please Assist, Many Thanks
Ranch Hand

I had this problem before, I cant remember the exact solution, but it was something to do with the path variables. You are looking in the right place! Make sure you dont have a duplicate entry. For instance a path to version 1.5 in the PATH variable, but also a ref to a variable such as JAVA_HOME which might be set to an older java version.

If you dont need the older version, Id search for it and make sure to remove it entirely from your system, that way you can be sure its gone.

Hope that points you in the right direction.
