When I install the JDE I am able to launch it fine. However, every subsequent attempt to launch the JDE returns an error stating that it is unable to find RIMIDEWin32Util.dll. I was able to find this post, which described the same problem. The only support advice given was to ensure the actual .dll file was in the JDE install directory, and mine is.
Does anyone else know what might be causing this?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Below there is an excerpt from the forum discussion
Don't use the 64-bit java SDK. The JDE needs the 32-bit version. I am using jdk-6u6-windows-i586-p.exe with WinXP64.
I was receiving the same error as you with Vista 64bit.
Switched ide.bat to use a 32bit jdk and it works fine now.

Was the 32 bit JDE included with my download? Or do I need to get that from somewhere else? I assume it's the IDE.jar file.
This is all my ide.bat has. I don't really see where it has identified a 64 bit version.
start javaw -Xmx256M -DRIM_RUNTIME=..\lib -DRIM_BIN=..\bin -jar IDE.jar

It is not about JDE it is about JDK (Java Development Kit)
Uninstall Java Development Kit from Sun Microsystems from your computer via Control Panel/Add Remove Programs
Restart your computer.
Follow this link specify platform "Windows" and downlad the JDK (see attached image file below).
When downloaded JDK is installed make sure that JDK/bin folder, where javac.exe located is added to PATH environment variable.

What are your JAVA_HOME and PATH environment variables? This issue is triggered by the user of a 64 bit JDK.
Support - Error when debugging: Cannot find RIMIDEWin32Util.dll. This is a required component of the IDE.

These are the only Java related environment variables that I have.
.;C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.6.0_07\lib\ext\QTJava.zip
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.6.0_07\lib\ext\QTJava.zip

Set the following environment variables:
JAVAHOME path to the folder where JDK is installed
PATH add path to bin folder of your JDK. For example if JDK installed in folder c:\jdk then add the following to the PATH variable: c:\jdk\bin
