Hi Ahmad,

As the error message suggests it, your issue is likely to be related to the
amount of memory available:
    Error occurred during initialization of VM
    Could not reserve enough space for object heap

How much memory did you allocate to your VM? Can you run any other Java
applications in your JVM?
