With my past experience of Eclipse, to install eclipse you unzip the zip file downloaded from Eclipse.org. I haven't see a startup.bat file with Eclipse.

Can you please elaborate what you did?

I'd suggest you check your machine for viruses. Also look at the icon properties for the icon you're clicking on. Normally, BAT files run EXE's - the other way around is a much more rare and specialized case. Eclipse has never done that and I wouldn't expect it to, since Eclipse is mostly OS-independent, and BAT files only run under DOS/Windows.

Eclipse installs are not OS independent. You can not copy a windows install and try to use it on Linux without expecting problems. The graphic library is native.

It sounds like the OP does not have the proper JRE installed. Are you using a Sun JRE?

Eclipse installation does not come bundled with a Java Runtime. I assume you have installed Java (Version 1.4 or above) before you invoke eclipse.exe.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
