EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION JVM crashes when using Window Builder


When I double click on a button I put with Window Builder, Eclipse exit, and a hs_err_pidXXXX is created.

I uninstall Java, reinstall JRE or JDK.

I try both.

do some modification in eclipse.ini like add -Dsun.java2d.d3d=false, update all of plugins, eclipse, java, formatting my PC.

Some of the error file :

"A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
