Force.com IDE not able to start

Hello,

 

We are trying to set up the development environment for our developers. The problem is that after the installation the Force.com IDE dows not start.

All we get is an error message from Forceide, I have attached the copied contets of the message. It would be much appreciated if someone could tell us what we need to change to get it running:

Find the forceide.ini file. It should be in the same folder as your forceide.

 

edit the forceide.ini  file and comment out the following lines by adding '#" infornt of them.

#-vmargs

#-Dfile.encoding=UTF-8

#-Xms.256m

#-Xmx1024m

#-XX:PermSize=128M

#-XX:MaxPermSize=512M

 

Also make sure you are using the jdk1.6 version and not the 7. Forceide will not work with Java7
