DS 1.6 Error : Java was started but returned with exit code=1


I recently upgraded from DS 1.5 to 1.6. The installation was successful but i keep getting this error. I understand there are lot of scn threads on this. This is what I have tried so far


a. changed the "Xmx" to 512m/2g/4g

b. deleted this line : jre/bin/SapDesignStudioVM.exe

Tried a & b together as well as separately


Renamed Analysis-config and Analysis-workspace folders. Should i delete them?

3. SAP Design Studio Client Tool Customization – Part 01

a. changed the "vm" parameter line to "C:\Program Files\SAP BusinessObjects\Design Studio\jre\bin\javaw.exe". Deleted that line too

b. changed the "XX:MaxPermSize" to 512m

This is a Windows enterprise 64 bit machine with 8GB of installed memory. Every time a change was made, I ensured to restart my computer.

The error message and the ini file are attached.

Any assistance is much appreciated. Thank you.
