Do you have a 32 or a 64 bit machine? Are you following this guide IoT - Installing the Eclipse* IDE | Intel® Developer Zone ? What version of the Windows OS are you using?
Have you tried to install Eclipse with the Unified Installer IoT - Intel® Edison Board Download | Intel® Developer Zone
I am running windows 10 64 bit and I was following IoT - Intel® Edison Board Get Started Guide | Intel® Developer Zone which included downloading the unified installer and later going through the guide for installing Eclipse, though I did not download eclipse from the installer. I also went back and installed it through the Unified Installer but I get the same error when I start eclipse.
I'm having the same (or similar) problem and started a thread last week. No answer yet that solves anything.
I too downloaded the "Integrated Installer" but it seems to NOT provide anything WRT Eclipse (so I don't know we are told to use the Integrated Installer for an improvement). That IDE needs to be downloaded separately and apparently independently, one must also install java (JDK)
None of the "suggestions" provided in that error window actually help.
What is the result of double clicking in C:\Intel\iotdk-ide-win\devkit-launcher.bat? Do you have the .bat file in the same directory?
I've tried running it from there too but I still run into the same issue.
I've not been able to get rid of the "java error".
Since I am trying to use the C/C++ path, I've been able to ignore it.
Did you install the latest Java from Java SE - Downloads | Oracle Technology Network | Oracle ?
The error message also says “ensure Java is in PATH”. Are you sure you set Java in the correct PATH?
I do have the latest version and I have tried adding a PATH environment variable that leads to where Java is but none of that seems to have worked.
I had no issues installing or running the eclipse IDE by clicking the bat or running it from cmd.
I have java SE Development Kit 8 update 65 (64-bit)
Windows 10 64 bit.
Make sure to have the right JDK, and take a screenshot of the installed programs window with the JDK highlighted.
I installed the Eclipse on a second Windows 10 system and I am still not able to reproduce your issue.
How are you installing Eclipse, have you uninstall and re-install it using the installer? http://downloadmirror.intel.com/25384/eng/w_iot_2015.0.028.exe
Where are you installing the program? Try installing it on a path without spaces, such as: C:\Intel-Dev\iotdk-ide-win
I am having the same trouble except with Windows 7 64 bit. Could you please provide a little more detail with what the path should be etc? This is where I am at now:
My path to the program is: C:\Intel\iotdk-ide-win (no spaces)
I created a path to Java as the user above did.
This is the version of Java I downloaded online. Is this the error?
Any help would be appreciated.

I agree. It's not really satisfying to read "ensure java is in Path". (as it says in the command shell)
What is "java" - a specific file, or perhaps a folder that holds that specific file, or perhaps that folder's folder?
For example, is the PATH entry:
C:\Program Files\java ?
or C:\Program Files\java\jdk1.8.0_66 ?
or C:\Program Files\java\jdk1.8.0_66\bin ?
or C:\Program Files\java\jre1.8.0_66 ?
Try doing something like this: Go to Control Panel > System > Advanced system settings > Advanced > Environment Variables then add a New System Variable called JDK_HOME.
It will look something like this:
In the variable value you have to set the address where you installed the jdk.In my case it is C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_65
Let me know your results
