Im running windows XP Professional
I have all of the latest updates on my laptop and I just downloaded the latest version of SQL Developer but when I try to open the program I receive this error “Unable to create an instance of the java virtual machine.”

Ive been looking at solutions all morning and to be honest I really don’t understand what they mean when they talk about AddVMOption -Xmx512M. I don’t know where to go to do this. Any ideas??

Option 1---- point the application to the latest JVM location.
Option 2---- download the version of SQL Developer that comes bundled with JVM.
