I've now switched to 64-bit versions of ECLiPSe6.1 (build 85), Java1.6, and
eclipseIDE (build ID 20110615-0604). I've verified that 6.1 works fine by
running a test in TkEclipse. I configured the IDE to use the right JVM
(Windows | Preferences | Java | Installed JREs ...and added path to 64-bit
JVM), and to use the right CLP (Run | Run Configurations | <run config
bundle> | Arguments | VM arguments ="C:\Program
Files\ECLiPSe 6.1\"). But I still get an error suggesting that the embedding
framework can't find the right JVM:

Exception in thread "clpThread" java.lang.RuntimeException: Unsupported
platform: Windows 7/amd64
at com.parctechnologies.eclipse.Platform.findPlatform(
at com.parctechnologies.eclipse.Platform.getInstance(
at sg.ihpc.wayang.WorldToObserver.go(
at sg.ihpc.wayangTest.Main$

I tried appending a path to the 64-bit JVM to the setting:"C:\Program Files\ECLiPSe 6.1\" -vm C:/Program

but I get the same error. This seems related to Kish's final comment about
potential problems spawning an OutOfProcessEclipse, although I'm not trying
to get it to use 32-bit. I'd be happy to have it run in 64-bit.
