  • After installation I receive error "Object reference not set to an instance of an object"

    After installing Eclipse SE, I received the error "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" when I logged in.

    1. This issue occurs due to an issue within Windows 10 related to User Access Control (UAC). To ensure UAC is turned off, do the following:

    Open the registry
    Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
    Modify Key EnableLUA
    Set it to 0
    Restart
    Reinstall Eclipse SE

    2. Issue could be related to the System Directory not being a UNC path.

    Share the drive where the Eclipse SE resides
    Configure the System Directory as a UNC path upon login of Eclipse SE Admin..
    Authorize Eclipse SE

    This is some great advice!

    I have had to manually change the UAC registry key to "0" multiple times when completing this same action in the Windows UI does not work.
