If you download the vanilla 32-bit Eclipse IDE for Java Developers from eclipse.org, and run it on its own without Burrito installed, are you able to install the VASGen plugin successfully on top of it?
Also, are you on Mac or Win?
Hi Chris. I have not downloaded vanilla Eclipse. I'm not sure I want to get into a whole debugging process - just hoping for someone to point me to the definitive Flash Builder documentation for installing Eclipse plugins. If VASGen doesn't work so be it.
I'm currently running on WinXP.

Generally you should be able to install other Eclipse plug-ins the usual way you describe, via Help -> Install New Software.
If you do that now with Burrito, browsing the Helios site for features compatible with eclipse 3.6, are you able to select an item of interest and install it successfully?
I took a quick look at the Vasgen site, and the problem there is that it's not in the p2 repository or update site formats that eclipse can install directly from, so that clearly won't work. The latest version of VAS posted there is over 2.5 years old, so there's no assurance it will be compatible with Helios. You could try placing the jar into the dropins folder under \eclipse\dropins\, and see if that works.
You'll probably be better off posting to their forum instead, if they have an active site, and see what versions of eclipse they support.
This is a really helpful answer. I will try what you suggest and report back.
