I just installed Eclipse version 3.3.2 along with Java jre1.6.0_05.  When I go to the "File -> New -> Project..." menu the "Select a wizard" dialogue is empty.  Any recommendations on how to fix this or what I may be missing?

As a followup, I just removed it and installed the JEE version to see if that would make a difference, nope.

The only other plugin I have installed is the Android ADT kit, which in theory should have a project in the Project wizard.  See this page for more info, I followed the install steps as shown:

It seems there is some problem with the Eclipse installation. Can you try and reinstalling it again? Can you also have a look at the logs and see if they say anything?

There isn't really an installer for eclispe, just uncompress it.  I've done it twice now with the same results.  According to the log it looks like there might be an invalid preference page.  See the attached log file

Can you downgrade Eclipse and try again? What about using 3.3.1?

Installed 3.3.1, still nothing in the project wizard and the Android ADT kit was complaining about missing features when I went to install it.  So deleted it all again and installed "3.3.2 jee" again.

This time when I installed the Android ADT kit, at the dialogue box that said "Restart? Yes, No, Apply Changes", instead of just Restarting I told it to Apply Changes.  After it was done, I restarted Eclipse just to make sure.  Now under the "File -> New..." menu there is "Android project...", which is what I'm try to get.

So after enough re-installs I managed to get it.  Thank you for the help :)
