    Error in accessing SQL Developer

    978497
      Hi,
      I am using Windows Xp-32 bit system and I have installed SQL developer 3.2.20.09.87.I have installed both jdk 1.6 and jdk 1.7 but when i am opening it this error is coming:-

      Unable to create an instance of the java virtual machine Located at Path:..\..\jdk\jre\bin\client\jvm.dll

      Earlier there was no such problem in using the same version but now suddenly this error is coming.

      please advise what to do for the above problem.

      Thanks
      Mahesh

          Hi Mahesh,

          Make sure you point at a 32-bit 1.6 JDK in the SetJavaHome line of your
          <SQLDev_Home>\sqldeveloper\sqldeveloper\bin\sqldeveloper.conf
          file. Alternately, delete that SetJavaHome line so you will get prompted to browse for it on next SQL Developer start-up.

          If you had downloaded the Windows 32-bit - zip file includes the JDK1.6.0_35 from
          http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/sql-developer/downloads/index.html

          you would never get prompted -- the default SetJavaHome line points at the JDK included in the download.

          Hope this helps,
          Gary
