Thanks, for the heads up, we'll update that.

Have you installed WTP? Have you installed the prerequisites for WTP?

To check do the following:

start eclipse with forrest -clean to force eclipse to reload all plugins 
(need only do this once)

Help -> Software Updates -> Manage COnfiguration

Make sure the "Show disabled features" button is pressed (third from 
left on toolbar)

Expand the tree

Are any of your plugins disabled? That is do they show a little red "no 
entry" sign on thier icon. If they are have a look at the status of 
those plugins to see why.

This is one of the projects you must import into your workspace. Do you 
have it? (it's in our SVN)

These will go away when you solve the above issues.

What do you mean you got one package for Eclipse + WTP? Can you point me 
to the lcoation you downloaded this? I'm not aware of such a package.

In my experience WTP is very much dependant on specific versions of its 
pre-requisites, it is important to ensure you have the exact versions 
they specifiy on their downloads page.
