Am trying to use Eclipe IDE. When i try to open it get the error message as "Version 1.4.2_06 of the JVM is not suitable for this product. Version:1.5 or greater is required". Please help in configuring the path and opening the eclipse.

Thanks,
Rajesh.

If your Eclipse version is europa, you need Java 5 JRE. If you already installed the JRE, you can specify JRE version to launch eclipse.
Refer to THIS.

1)Download jdk-6u20-windows-i586
2)Install jdk-6u20-windows-i586
3)To make sure that Windows can find the Java compiler and interpreter:
• Select Start -> Computer -> System Properties -> Advanced system settings -> Environment Variables -> System variables -> Path.
• [ In Vista, select Start -> My Computer -> Properties -> Advanced -> Environment Variables -> System variables -> PATH. ]
• [ In Windows XP, Select Start -> Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Environment Variables -> System variables -> PATH. ]
• [ In Windows 7, Select Start -> Control Panel -> System -> Advanced system settings -> Environment Variables -> System variables -> PATH. ]
4)Paste C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_20\bin; to the beginning of the Variable value
5)Click OK
6)This could solve your problem very well.
