For anyone else out there that might run into this, I was installing
64-bit RDi version 126.96.36.199 on a 64-bit Windows 10 VM and ran into an issue.
The installation ran perfectly, no errors. When I tried to start RDi, I
got a popup window with a first line stating
"Java was started but returned exit code = 13" followed by the path
"C:\Users\c71584\OneDrive - Vista Outdoor\IBM\SDP\jdk\jre\bin\javaw.exe"
A little googling found that exit code 13 indicates a 32-bit vs 64-bit
mismatch between OS, JRE, and/or RDi. The recommended solution is to
make sure file eclipse.ini contains the path to the appropriate JRE for
the version of Eclipse being run. In this case, Windows is 64-bit, RDi
is 64-bit and the Java pointed to by elipse.ini
C:\Users\c71584\OneDrive - Vista Outdoor\IBM\SDP\jdk\jre\bin\javaw.exe
is also 64-bit. Which I would expect, since this was all installed by
the IBM Installation Manager which installed RDi and its own personal
copy of Java.
My clue was that someone on stackoverflow mentioned that certain
characters in the path will cause problems; however a hyphen (as used
above) was not one of those characters. However, further down in the
eclipse.ini file, I saw this:
I changed it to
C:/Users/c71584/OneDrive - Vista Outdoor/IBM/SDP
