If you want to start your Eclipse, choose your workbench to load and than Eclipse stops, you probably have a workbench error.
Take a look at the .log file in workspaces/<yourworkspace>/.metadata. There is a chance you find the error: Problems occurred when invoking code from plug-in: “org.eclipse.ui.workbench”. To fix this, follow the steps below.
- Go to workspaces/<yourworkspace>/.metadata/.plugins
- Find the folder org.eclipse.e4.workbench
- Delete it
- Restart Eclipse
Now the problem is fixed and Eclipse will start again but be aware that your workspace layout will be back to default. Enjoy!
