Yes you have to unzip them to plugin dir of eclipse installation (not under eclipse dir directly) if your VEP doesn't work as expected, I guess : 1. uncompatibile versions of VEP, GEF, EMF 2. maybe you have to activate them (I am using VE, I don't need to activate it) hope this help.

I don't know really !! I have never need to activate a plugin in eclipse ! but I heared that some plugin need to be activated. I have VEP, I don't need to activate it, just make sure that you have the correct versions of VE, EMF, GEF I hope that I can help you more but I am not an eclipse user.
I have recently tried to install the Visual Editor plugin into Eclipse 3.0.1 and could not get it to work. I suspect that Eclipse 3.0.1 was not compatible because the feature.xml file under eclipse/features/org.eclipse.ve_1.0.1 stated the following: <requires> <import feature="org.eclipse.jdt" version="3.0.0" match="compatible"/> <import feature="org.eclipse.emf" version="2.0.1" match="compatible"/> <import feature="org.eclipse.gef" version="3.0.0" match="compatible"/> </requires>
This makes me think that the VE 1.0.1 plugin is not compatible with Eclipse 3.0.1. I'm new to Eclipse so if anyone can verify this, I would appreciate it.

Okay, I guess I cannot put XML in these messages. The text in features.xml in eclipse/features/org.eclipse.ve_1.0.1 states the following:
I finally got VE to work. I was missing the EMF and GEF plugins. Even though I could only load EMF-SDO version 2.0.1, VE does now work with Eclipse 3.0.1. I also had to run "eclipse -clean" per the instructions in the VE FAQ.
