There isn't much information to go on. I would say completely uninstalling java from Programs list (in the windows control panel), and then try installing it again after that.


Other then that, could be malware, system corruption, or even too many programs running in the background.

That means you have 32bit AND 64bit Java installed. Go to your Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs, Scroll down to Java, and delete your Java. After that, go into your Java directory and confirm they are gone. Check both these directories
1.C:\ Program Files \ Java
2.C:\ Program FIles (x86) \ Java

After that, go to the Java website, and download the appropriate Java, 32 bit or 64 bit, depending on your system specs, not both.

Not true. Having both installed is perfectly fine and recommended practice on 64bit OSes.

yeah, I have 6 versions of java installed for various troubleshooting.   4 JREs (6 and 7, 32 adn 64 bit of each), and 64-bit JDKs for 6 and 7.

There is just one download on the java site? Online mode and offline mode..

The Java site will only give you the the most recent version with the bitness that matches your browser. There's a complete list at Oracle's site for Java 6 and Java 7.

Something got corrupted.   Try rebooting the machine and then doing the reinstall again.

I was playing earlier this evening then tonight I try firing up minecraft so I could play with my son, same problem with the "could not create..." error message.  I've uninstalled, downloaded the newest version, installed, rebooted my system and am getting the same error plus a second error message line - "Error: A fatal exception occourred.  Program will exit."

So, I again uninstalled, verified the uninstall, downloaded and installed again, rebooted, verified the correct version was installed... and am still getting the two error messages.

Downloading from:
http://www.java.com/...load/manual.jsp

And selecting the link for:
Windows Online

Which is the file named:
jre-7u5-windows-i586-iftw.exe

No malware found on my system of any kind.

Same error on Windows Vista here. Specs are:
    Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2
    Intel Core 2 Duo(Dual Core) 2.40GHz
    RAM: 2GB
    32-bit operating system.
Tried all recommended solutions and none worked. Is it a problem with Windows Vista?

From yesterday i have the same problem. Hours before minecraft running without problems.
Mysteriously i installed nothing or do anything else on computer during this time, just end old Minecraft session.

After that i get everytime of starting Minecraft:
-> Could not create the java virtual machine launcher

Nothing helped, i deinstalled java and reinstalled newest version 7 and also old running version 6 and also i installed both releases on same time, but nothing helped minecraft starting.

I also tried this batch file in differnt versions like:
java -Xms650m -Xmx2048m -jar "C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\[username]\Anwendungsdaten\.minecraft\Minecraft.exe"
(for [username] my username)

I also tried to delete single worlds in .minecraft folder or delete the same .minecraft folder for a new blank installation of minecraft. But also minecraft.exe will not be able to start and break with this error message.

Also i tried other java apps, for example "minecraft xray" which are working fine without problems.

Finally i also scanned for virus or trojan, but system seems clean.

Operating system is windowsXP SP3 32bit
AMD Phenom 9600 quad core
3 GB Ram

The most confusion is, that minecraft was running hours before, so that old drivers cannot the be the problem.

Hope you can fix the launcher software, it would be sadly if i must end my minecraft career. :(

Small update.
Found on iNet a small "solution" which is working (but not really elegant)

I created simple a new windows user. With this user the Launcher started without error message and installed a new blank minecraft.
Not yet tested to install my old worlds into new win-account.

Perhaps it helps for finding a finally solution. Seems that a bug is creating something like a zombie which wasting the java memory old installations.

Have you ensured that your Java is set to execute with the amount of memory you are attempting to allocate to Minecraft?  I was getting that issue just now until I forced Java to run with 1 gig of memory rather than it's default.

Go here: http://www.duckware....pletmemory.html

Follow those instructions and add the amount of memory you are trying to force Minecraft_Server.exe to run in your batch files.  Hopefully that will solve your problem.
