Does anyone have any idea how I can use Visual Editor?

Even with the latest Helios download, I still cannot use Visual Editor. The help topic says to right-click over a java class, go to 'open with' and select the visual editor, or go to 'visual class', but neither of these are in any list. I see java editor, java model editor, system editor, text editor, default editor, ant editor, everything except 'visual editor'. Under the 'new' menu, there is a class, but not visual class. I have checked 'new' and 'new->other->java, unsuccessfully. I searched my hard drive, and found several java files eclipse/ve/internal folder with the word 'visual' in their names. But I cannot find anything like this when I'm in the Eclipse IDE. I really want to follow this tutorial http://www.cs.siu.edu/~wainer/484S05/visEdit/eclipseVE.pdf

BTW, I have java 6u20 update.

Currently you can't use Helios. Go back to Galileo or Ganymedes and
follow this instructions for it installation:

Hope this helps,
