Hi, guys, I've downloaded the 64-bit version of Eclipse.

But, I'm having trouble installing it.

It says that I need to have "javaw.exe" in the directory, but I've already tried bringing the JDE folder into the Eclipse directory.

How do I get it working?

You do not have to bring the JDK into the directory. What is probably missing is the java_home environment setting.
iirc this is not set by the installer.

I launch by giving an explicit VM to run:

-vm full-path-to-javaw

Handy for switching between different flavors.

Well, assuming windows then create a shortcut of 'eclipse.exe'.  Edit the properties (right-click, pull down select properties).  Then edit the 'target' box.  An example is:

C:\tools\eclipse\eclipse.exe -vm "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\javaw.exe" -vmargs -Xmx1024m
