I used to have Eclipse SDK 3.5.1-win32-x86_64 and it works well.
This morning I thought why not use the latest version? So I deleted the eclipse folder and unzipped the SDK 3.6. The nightmare happened then, I cannot even start the Eclipse when double clicking the icon. The message I got is (screen shot on web/attached):
It turned out that I once installed the latest JDK, 1.6.21, since it has some issue with eclipse, I switched it back to 1.6.20.
But the JDK is not installed successfully, that' why I got the eclipse error. After reinstalling JDK (double check, there should be a jdk1.6.0_version folder in C:Program Files\Java) , everything is back on the track .
