Our developers use PDSOE (OE 11.5) on VMware workstations (Win7 Ultimate) and on occasion, sometimes a bit more frequently than we'd like, the IDE becomes unresponsive or throws an Out of Memory error. We've since learned to tweak the startup params to increase the heap size available to Eclipse, however, we still have issues with the IDE becoming unresponsive. This behavior is exhibited across multiple virtualized workstations and I was wondering if anyone is aware of any other tips/tricks related to Eclipse configuration (running in a virtualized env) that could benefit our developers.
Quick follow up on your post. Can you move to 64-bit if still needed to access 32-bit activex controls?
It helps as it is what I thought. We are kind of stuck with POS peripheral support where you can only get 32-bit support.
