Cannot Install Crystal Reports for Eclipse v2.0 on Mac OSX

I've tried to install the Crystal Reports plug-in to my Eclipse environment without any success.  No matter what I try, I get the same error message:

"Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found.
  Missing requirement: 1271104370856 requires ' [2.0.6.r916]' but it could not be found"

To the best of my knowledge, I've installed all the correct pre-requisites listed on the SAP website.  I've tried every search I can think of and have found nothing that helps.

I've attached a screenshot of what my screen looks like.

I'm at my wits end...please help!

hmmm...I know I looked at that document, but I completely overlooked that section :)

As an experiment, I installed the all-in-one package on my PC and then copied the Crystal Reports-related files from the 'features' and 'plugins' folders into the corresponding folders on a mac (a different Mac).  Suprisingly, it seemed to work.  I was able to successfully create and design a few reports from a db on MS SQL Server 2005.

However, when I went to update the Crystal Reports plug-in on the Mac, I got the same error :(

So, I understand the "official" answer that design-time on Mac OS X is not supported, but speaking hypothetically, could you speculate as to a reason for the error?

On a separate note, I noticed that the 'Enterprise Repository' View is not available (on my Mac nor my PC); so any speculation there would be appreciated as well.

Thanks so much for the help!

I don't know of any answer to the problem.  

Are you installing in a "Windows" partition on the Mac or trying to run it under Mac OS?

Nope. No partition, just running it under Mac OS.
I don't think Crystal has any plans to make the designer work under MAC or *Nix

yeah, that'd be a real tragedy, wouldn't it? ;)
