When I try to run the 3.2 version of Eclipse that comes packaged with the Stanford Intro to Programming Methodology course, the initial purple eclipse startup box pops up and it asks me which workbench I want to use. Once I select a workbench (or what have you), it crashes and tells me to check the logs. I have a PC running Vista and a Mac running OSX, and both computers encounter the same issue.

This is the error log I get on my computer running Windows.

It would be fantastic if someone could tell me what I'm doing wrong. I just did a fresh install of JRE 1.6

It should still run, but why work with 7-year old software when you
could be using the latest (3.7) with all its capabilities and bug fixes?

Because it's packaged with the Stanford course and has had specific modifications made to it for use expressly with the course in question.
