Failed to load the JNI shared library jvm.dll

Error: Failed to load the JNI shared library jvm.dll

When you start the Eclipse Indigo, it prompt out the error

Failed to load the JNI shared library “C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\client\jvm.dll

This is because you do not have the Java SDK

or Maybe your Java SDK is not 64 Bit

If you install the SDK before, you must download the newest version to solve the error above.

Download Java SE 7 JDK

You can download the newest version from here .

Make sure that you choose the one is Java SE 7 – JDK

The newest version for current date is jdk-7u3-windows-x64.exe
