Maven error occurred during initialization of VM Could not reserve enough space for object heap

Today I faced the same problem with same error message but this time it was when I was trying to run Maven for my project to clean and build , eclipse was showing me below message again

Error occurred during initialization of VM Could not reserve enough space for object heap

The reason for this problem was that I am using a 32 bit JDK and in my VM parameters I was initiating the head size like

-Xmx1024m equal to 1GB

when you do that on a 64bit windows platform the windows can't alocate this uch memory and you will see the above error message , so I just reduced the size to less then a GB like below

-Xmx1000m

and now I can run maven.
