ColdFusion Builder 3.0 installation fail..?

Twitter won't let me send this image for some reason, so I'll post it here.

I'm trying to install ColdFusion Builder 3.0 on my Win 8.1 (64-bit) laptop. I've just D/Led the current (Kepler) Eclipse 4.3.2 64-bit installation, and that runs fine.

Having tried to install CFB as a plug-in to that, it installs fine and says "yeah good" at the end, but when it then goes to start Eclipse, I get this error:

Anyone know what gives?

I googled about, and there's not much about this, but generally it's people using a 32-bit JVM when they should be using a 64-bit one. Eclipse itself picks up my JAVA_HOME value fine, which points to a 64-bit JVM. So I don't think that's it.

I really don't want to waste any more time than is really necessary on this as all I'm installing CFB for is in prep for Simon's <cfclient> prezzo @ CF.Objective(). I thought I might actually do a "G'day World" exercise with it first. But I have no interest in CFB beyond that.

Anyone encountered this, and know what the story is? I'd google more thoroughly, but I'm on a shonky free wifi connection @ LHR, and have a bunch of more important things to do.

Am just hoping someone's had this and knows what the story is. Do not do any special investigation for me if you don't automatically know. I can look it up later on when I have a better connection and more time, if push comes to shove.

Cheers all.
