How do I solve the StarTeam error, "Error could not create the Java virtual machine"?
This error is caused whenever the Java Virtual Machine is unable
to launch. Further details are available from the Java Stack Trace.
This error is known to be caused when memory allocation to the JVM
is increased to 1GB or above.
Two possible approaches can be taken to resolving this issue. The memory allocation can be limited at the system level (this will affect all Java applications) or can be limited for StarTeam only. Both approaches are outlined below.
Changing memory allocation at the system level
Changing memory allocation for StarTeam
Simply open the StarTeamCP.stjava file (found in the directory where you installed StarTeam CPC, by default its c:\program files\Borland\Starteam Cross-Platform Client 2008)and modify the options line to say -Xmx512m for example. The exact value will depend on the amount of resources your machine has and the 512m value is a recommendation.
Contact Borland Support if you continue to have trouble
launching the StarTeam CPC.
