Java was started but returned exit code=13

Java was started but returned exit code=13

Cause of the Error :

This error mainly comes due when you execute the build of the Eclipse RCP.

Here I ‘m providing the probable solution to resolve this error.

This error mainly comes when there is error in the "Product Configuration".
So when this kind of error comes, try to create new "Product Configuration" and re generate the build of it.
Here are the steps to create the new "Product Configuration". Follow all the steps and generate the new Build and then try and check if it works ok or not.

How to Create new "Product Configuration" ?

Right click on project name, then select “New” -> “Other…”

Select “Plug-in Development” -> “Product Configuration”

Enter “File name:”


Select your project in “use an existing product:”

Click on Finish


Open “Dependencies” and click on “Add Required Plug-ins”

Right click on the project name and select “Export…”

Select “Plug-in Development” -> “Eclipse product”

Enter directory path in the “Directory” field
