VC for Eclipse 2.2 does not start


We just did a fresh installation of VC for Eclipse under Windows 7 64 bits and here is the error message :

An internal error occurred during: "Initializing Java Tooling".

This is the first start of the program. We tried after having suppressed the workspace. Sme thing.

I saw that someone had the same problem under Linux.

Any idea what it might be ?

Kind regards,


  • This error message can occur if you do not have a valid license installed for this product or if you have only a 64-bit version of Java installed on your system.

    Visual COBOL for Eclipse requires that you have a 32-bit JVM installed and available on your computer.

    You can check the licenses installed by opening up the Micro Focus License Manager under Start menu-->All Programs.
