force.com IDE upgrade error

I'm new to salesforce and the IDE.  I installed the IDE sucessfully.  (Windows Installer (32-bit))   After I launch the IDE, I attempted to upgrade.  (Eclipse Platform and SDK 3.5.2,  Force.com IDE 24.0.0)

 

After the upgrade, I'm not able to launch.  .metadata\.log shows the following:

I happened to installed eclipse indigo (3.7).  To be sure it'll work, I downloaded 3.6, following the install plug-in instructions and went very smoothly.  thank you for the assistance.
