  1. @nab: Usually this is an Out-of-memory error, so the most obvious solution is to increase the memory assigned to the JVM.

    Edit eclipse.ini to do that.

    The eclipse error log may contain more information (Window/Show View/Error Log).

  2. The problem occurred for me whilst I was working in XP compatibility mode. I created a second copy of eclipse.exe, and called it eclipse-xp.exe. From ankon’s remarks, I guess the problem I had was that there was no eclipse-xp.ini file and so the extra memory assignment I’ve set for eclipse wasn’t being picked up.
