Probably, this error means that you have done something wrong. You have to check;
- Are you have the latest JDK (java development Kit) downloaded?
- What is the architecture of your PC, 64 bit or 32 bit?
- The architecture is the same as the JDK version because it should be the same.
- Have you set the path in the environment variable like shown in the fix JVM not found error?
Fix java was started but returned the exit code-1:
Go to the eclipse folder and right-click on the eclipse.ini and then select the edit option.
Now add the following lines;
The path of the JDK should be the same where you have installed the JDK.
The above error can also fix the Eclipse error: Java was started but returned exit code=2. Make sure that the –VM option occurs before the –vmargs command. This is because every command that occurs after the –vmargs is passed directly to the JVM.
Everything that is passed directly to the JVM. If you don’t know where the eclipse.ini file is. Regularly this is in the folder of your eclipse.exe.
That’s it, hopefully, you have successfully learned how to fix java was started but returned the exit code 1.
