This is the incorrect version of Designer for this version of Eclipse.
This version was compiled for Eclipse 3.0 and is running on Eclipse 3.0 RC1.
Eclipse version reads as:
Build id: 200405290105
(May 29th) Eclipse build is not
the final Eclipse build. The 200405290105
build is Eclipse 3.0 RC1
. The final Eclipse 3.0 build is 200406251208
(June 25th). You can see this clearly on the Eclipse download page
Based on the informnation you provide above, it sounds like Designer is correctly identifying the version and correctly issuing an error message. If you want to use the v2.0.1 version of Designer, you need to be using the Eclipse 3.0 final release, not the RC1 release as you apparently are using.

It reads it out of the about.mappings
file in the org.eclipse.platform
plugin. This is the same build ID you wil see in the Eclipse About dialog.
