For some reason or other, I am getting this error when I try to start Eclipse --> Failed to load the JNI shared library "C:\Windows\system32\..\jre\bin\client\jvm.dll"

Searching the web has not led me to a solution yet so I thought I would try here.

This isn't a new install and all was working fine just a few days ago. The only thing I had done is exit out of Eclipse a few days ago when I was finished working and the restarted the computer today before knowing anything about this error.

I did try deleting and re-downloading and installing Eclipse to no avail.

If it matters, I am running Windows 7 64bit, I have Kepler Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers, and I am sure that I have the 64bit version.

So.................any ideas?

Thanks to anyone.

Does the jvm.dll exist in the location Eclipse is expecting?
Maybe you should try using the 64 eclipse version?

What is JAVA_HOME set to?

Also, look in the registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment and its subkeys.

I'm assuming that one of those things is set to c:\windows\system32, which is not correct.
