I have some problems starting Eclipse. When I try to start it, this error window appears:

Does anyone have any idea of how to fix this? I am using Windows 7.

Are you using Win 7 32 or 64 bit? What version of Eclipse is installed? What version of Java is installed? – matrixx333 Mar 16 '12 at 16:05
@matrixx333 Windows 64 bit, Eclipse version 3.7.2, jdk1.7.0_02, jre7 and the newest Java. – Andreas Mar 16 '12 at 16:33
...and your sure both your Eclipse and JDK's are the 64 bit versions? – matrixx333 Mar 16 '12 at 16:59
@matrixx333 Yes. – Andreas Mar 16 '12 at 17:10
I know this sound stupid.. But I downloaded it again from another website and now it works :D, thanks for posting though :) – Andreas Mar 16 '12 at 17:15

This problem occurs when your java version and OS version is different, if your window version is 64 bit but u installed 32 bit java version or vise versa then u will face this kind of issue, just check both version if all versions are same then check your eclipse version.
