I had the same problem with the same files(on Redmond 7x64bit). My nix box had no problem...but it was all 64 bit. In my case, I was using the 32 bit jre (with JDK 1.6.0_26) with 64 bit eclipse.

There is discussion of this in '2010 & '09 answered (thanks!! Eric Rizzo).
The readme for the 3.7 CDT install also explains it in section 3.1.2.

Long story short, the 32/64bit versions of Java and Eclipse must match.

Java versions (OS, 32/64bit, and features) are available at

The wiki and other sources recommend to mapping eclipse to the java install you want to use.

An example win version is below:
(c:\glassfish will not by typical)

As for me...I made these changes...and all has been well since.

Best of luck.
