2. Solution

Google it, and found this Eclipse bug, look like JRE 1.7 is causing the above “Install download” problem. A quick check, I’m really using JRE1.7!

To solve it, just change it back to JRE1.6. Hope this JRE1.7 problem will be solved in Eclipse future release.

change jre in eclipse
Note
This problem is simulated in Eclipse 3.7 or Eclipse 3.7.1 and JRE 1.7
