    I have the following environment:
      Eclipse 3.1.1 Build M20050929-0840
      Java 1.5.0_13
      Windows XP SP2
      VSS 6.0 (Build 8163)

    I put the plugin into the plugins directory and restarted Eclipse with the -clean switch as per install guide. However the install fails and the following message is in the Eclipse log file:
      !SESSION 2008-04-07 14:15:49.890 -----------------------------------------------
      eclipse.buildId=M20050929-0840

      java.vendor=Sun Microsystems Inc.
      BootLoader constants: OS=win32, ARCH=x86, WS=win32, NL=en_GB
      Command-line arguments:  -os win32 -ws win32 -arch x86 -clean

      !ENTRY org.eclipse.update.configurator 2008-04-07 14:15:51.250
      !MESSAGE Could not install bundle plugins/org.vssplugin_1.6.1/   No match is available for the required  
      execution environment: J2SE-1.3

    Looks like the plugin requires Java 1.3 and won't play ball with 1.5. Is there a way to get it to work with 1.5?

    Thanks,
