When I run bioclipse.exe I get an error stating "unsupported major.minor version" or "Bioclipse requires Java 1.6".

Answer: Bioclipse must be run with Java 6 (also known as 1.6). Download it and install from http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp and select the JRE version. That will allow you to execute Java-programs on your computer.
