Can you provide the full log messages so we can see where they are logged from and if there are any other messages as well.

It's probably a problem finding the config file or an invalid config file.

By the way, I can run the 0.66 using by following the wikipage. Do we need more configuration in order to run 0.7?

I've seen that before when cassandra.yaml file cannot be found or is corrupted. It may be that eclipse is not starting cassandra with the current working directory set as you think it is. Sorry, cannot help much with eclipse. 

There are a couple of places where that message can be logged. One is from the AbstractCassandraDaemon and the other is from the DatabaseDescriptor. Where is your's coming from?
