STS 2.6.0 startup error
I am trying to run STS 2.6.0.RELEASE on my Windows 7 (64 bit) machine. For that, I downloaded the appropriate zip from the springsource downloads page and unzipped it.
When I run the <directory_where_sts_unzipped>\springsource\sts-2.6.0.RELEASE\STS.exe, I get an error at the startup which is captured in the attachment and STS never starts.
I have JDK 1.5 and JDK 1.6 installed on my machine.
Any help would sincerely be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

A stackoverflow article withe the same error in:
implies that there is a mismatch in versions. Does the 'bitness' of your JDK match the bitness of the STS? 32bit JDK with 32bit eclipse, 64bit JDK with 64bit eclipse?

Thanks Andy for pointing me to the correct direction.
The issue was that my OS and STS installation was of 64-bit while the JDK was of 32 bit. After getting appropriate 64-bit JDK 1.6 installed, the issue has been resolved.
