Java Error: could not open 'C:\...\jvm.cfg

Recommended Posts

When running java -version, I was getting an error

Error: could not open `C:Windowsjrelibamd64jvm.cfg'

Also before that, I was trying to run Eclipse and got

Failed to load the JNI shared Library (JDK)

. Since I am on a x64 OS, with the same builds of Eclipse and Java, my version error was the tip off.


I used to have Java on this machine but had since removed it months ago. I am thinking this may be as to why the installer and java execution failed. TO resolve this, Delete the c:windowsjre folder. You should then be able to use Java again.
