You may get this error when you start eclipse if you have a mismatch of the 64/32 bit versions of your Operating System, Java JDK version, and Eclipse.


If your Operating System is 64 Bit, then you would get both Java and Eclipse of 64bit.

If you have multiple versions of Java installed on your system, check your JAVA_HOME to see what have you set as the default version.

You can also check which version of JDK has been set in eclipse.ini
