Fixing the forceidi config file works great. Thanks all for the help.


I fixed mine by just toning down these settings.  Specifically I changed -Xmx512 and -XX:MaxPermSize=386M




I lied.  I still couldn't go to the Force.com perspective, even once it came up.  I discovered that the Force.com installer for Windows 32bit is effectively broken.  Everything seems to work by installing Eclipse 3.6 first, and then installing the Force.com plugin afterwards, as described here.


it works, thanks
