Error in accessing SQL Developer

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
