For anyone else out there that might run into this, I was installing 64-bit RDi version 9.6.0.6 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

-vm
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:

-install
C:/Users/c71584/OneDrive
-
Vista Outdoor/IBM/SDP
-vmargs

I changed it to

-install
C:/Users/c71584/OneDrive - Vista Outdoor/IBM/SDP
-vmargs

and RDi started.

Hope it helps someone in the future.
