In the installation eclipse search for java virtual machines on your system.
In your case eclipse doesn't found a suitable javaw executable in the system path.
You have to set the "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_21\bin" in the system path and then install eclipse.

because now your java binaries are in the system path
java version "1.6.0_18" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_18-b07) Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 16.0-b13, mixed mode)

Thank You Seguy Gasques . I have never had such trouble installing software before. your intstruction worked perfectly. The android instructions said to update the path to include the tools directory but never mentioned anything about the java directory.
now that i have solved the no JRE problem, i have clicked on the eclipse.exe and got another error. lol.
JVM terminated. exit code 1
followed by a bunch of other jibberish.
hopefully google can help me find the solution to this problem.
i thought it was because i had JDK 6 installed so i intslled JDK 5 and still got the error message.
