|downloaded WTP complete non-SDK, have no J2EE perspective [message #200521]

I'm trying to get the features/plugins to get web projects. I'm using
Eclipse 3.3 and I just downloaded the 2.0 non-SDK Web Tools Platform
Complete zip. The way it is described there is exactly what I want to do;
develop web applications. I don't care about developing more tools.
I unzipped it into my eclipse directory and restarted eclipse. There are
no options to create a new web project, nor is there a J2ee perspective.
When I look at the Eclipse features, I see JST and WST both listed there.
So what am I missing? How do I get the J2EE perspective and web projects?
I've had this working at my previous job, not sure what I've done
different this time.

You were correct about the -vm parameter. I almost always specify this
parameter, and it should be the full path of java.exe or javaw.exe. You
might try temporarily adding "-debug" and "-clean" on separate lines
just above the -vm line in your eclipse.ini. After starting/restarting
Eclipse, check the Error Log view for "bundles which are not resolved".
The info available may allow you to determine if some requirement in a
WTP plug-in dependency chain is not being met.
