Here is how to fix an issue where the JAVA VM will not initialize.
By Christopher Alton
You may encounter the following error when working with a new or existing install of Eclipse/Selenium.
The first step is to ensure that you meet the requirements for running Eclipse/Selenium for the Perfecto Lab, as shown in this link here.
If you meet the requirements, and you experience the error, here are the troubleshooting steps to resolve the issue.
Verify that your JAVA client is installed.
If the JAVA client is not installed, Eclipse will not run. Please install the required JAVA client as recommended by the setup guide
If your JAVA client is installed and the error happens again, try to reinstall your JAVA client. This should relink all the libraries needed and fix the issue.
You can also relink your JAVA path by following the steps from Oracle regarding their JAVA product.
If the JAVA client is installed and you still experience this error, the Eclipse/Selenium service itself may not identifying your JAVA client. If this is the case, use the following commands on your workstation to enable JAVA. You may need your local IT team to assist with the commands.
>> Go to c:\eclipse folder and locate eclipse.ini file
>> Open the eclipse.ini file with a text editor
>> Add the following entry into the .ini file:
>> Save the eclipse.ini file and restart your Eclipse product.
If you are still facing a problem, please submit a support request to the Perfecto Support team.
