Error during download of BB_JDE_PluginFull_1.0.0.67.exe with Eclipse 3.5.1

I have just installed the latest Eclipse as of Jan 29, 2010 which is Eclipse 3.5.1.  This installation went just fine.


Now I download the BB_JDE_PluginFull_1.0.0.67.exe and begin to run the installation and this is where I get a warning message as follows:

"Warning for Eclipse Platform Update

Eclipse 3.5.1 found in the install folder is not compatible with BlackBerry JDE Plug-in for Eclipse

Click Change button to select another installation folder.

Click Continue button to update your Eclipse to 3.4.1"


What do I do?  Should I exit and install the old Eclipse version 3.4.1 and then try again? or should I contnue and have the JDE "update" me to Eclipse 3.4.1??

Version 1.0 of the BlackBerry JDE Plug-in for Eclipse requires Eclipse version 3.4.1.


Version 1.1 of the BlackBerry Java Plug-in for Eclipse supports version 3.5.0.


You can either downgrade Eclipse and use the 1.0 plug-in or use your existing Eclipse version with 1.1.  I recommend using version 1.1 of our plug-in.  You can download it here:  http://na.blackberry.com/eng/developers/devbetasoftware/javaplugin.jsp
