Check if you use a 64bit JDK to start the 64bit Eclipse. The 64bit JDK should be in “C:\Program Files\Java\..”

You can specify a specific JVM in the eclipse.ini file with the -vm argument:
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_21\bin\javaw.exe

The -vm option must occur before the -vmargs option, since everything after -vmargs is passed directly to the JVM.
