    SDDM 4 EA3: Unable to launch the Java Virtual Machine (Win 7 64bit)

    Brad_Peek

      SQL Developer v4 EA3 is working fine, but I decided to download the stand-alone SQL Developer Data Modeler because I had seen people recommending using it in favor of the one bundled with SQLDEV.

       

      Windows 7 64-bit

      Java (64 bit) installed into C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_25

       

      When I double-click the short-cut to start SDDM I get the following pop-up dialog error:

       

      Title:  Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler

      Unable to launch the Java Virtual Machine

      Located at path:

      C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_25\bin\msvcr100.dll

      I think I stumbled on the solution just prior to posting,  so here is what worked for me in case anyone else runs into this....

       

      I had created a desktop short-cut to "C:\Program Files\datamodeler\datamodeler.exe", which I am guessing is the 32bit version of the binary file.   

       

      I was able to launch successfully by pointing to "C:\Program Files\datamodeler\datamodeler64.exe"
