    Let us know what OS you're running, and Eclipse requires the SDK not just the JRE. If you're getting an error message, post it exactly, copied and pasted into a post, as it appears at your end. If you're using Windows, you'll find guidance about setting the environment variable CLASSPATH if you search for it.

    Everybody want to post screenshots these days. Why not copy and paste the error message so that it is human-readable? I can't read much of the picture, but there is mention of the required Java version being 1.6. Ensure that you downloaded the correct version of Java and that Eclipse and Java have the same -bit architecture. You said you have 64-bit XP, so download corresponding versions of Java and Eclipse.

    Also, correcting what I said earlier, Eclipse will run on a PC that just has the JRE installed, but to do Java development with Eclipse you'll need the Java SDK. Here's a guide for installing Eclipse on Windows, though you may be able to find a better one.
