Marting, welcome to Java Ranch!

I don't see anything offhand. Please post your eclipse.ini.

how you are adding the entry in eclipse.ini? add before -vmargs and add -vm then immediate next line C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\javaw.exe.

Line 7 is incorrect - the size needs to be on another line:

--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
512m
