How to fix Eclipse workbench error on start up


If you want to start your Eclipse, choose your workbench to load and then 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!
