I have here a computer (Windows XP) with java 1.4 and java 1.6 (I don't know why there is 1.4 on this system, probably they forget to uninstall it). Here is also Eclipse Helios.
Now if I want to start eclipse I get the message that Java 1.4 is too old. Huh? I have here also 1.6, Eclipse should start with 1.6
I checked the current Java Home via cmd
java version "1.4.2_03"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_0
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2_03-b02, mixed mode)
You can add the
-vm option to eclipse.ini:
It has to be on 2 separate lines and it has to be added before
