Java – Eclipse reported “Failed to load JNI shared library”


I can't open Eclipse because I get an alert that says

Failed to load JNI shared library C:\Program Files (x86)\eclipse\jre\bin\client\jvm.dll

I've found a kind of solution on YouTube, Eclipse Failed to load JNI library fix.

He says that you only have to download a JRE 7 folder. Then I just have to replace
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\server\jvm.dll with C:\Program Files (x86)\eclipse\jre\bin\client\jvm.dll.

But where is the JRE 7 link?

Best Solution

First, ensure that your version of Eclipse and JDK match, either both 64-bit or both 32-bit (you can't mix-and-match 32-bit with 64-bit).

Second, the -vm argument in eclipse.ini should point to the java executable. See for examples.

If you're unsure of what version (64-bit or 32-bit) of Eclipse you have installed, you can determine that a few different ways. See How to find out if an installed Eclipse is 32 or 64 bit version?
