On Windows, you cannot have two projects with names that are case-insensitively equal in the same workspace. So stop try to create a project named Swing1 and a project named swing1 because that just doesn't work (because in <workspace>/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.resources/.projects there will be a folder created for each project and because the Windows file system is case insensitive, one cannot create a folder Swing1 and a folder Swing2 in that .projects folder).

However, since there is already a project named "Swing1" in the Eclipse workspace, the New Java Project wizard should really not claim "The new project must be named 'Swing1'".
