Hi, I see this error quite a lot after people install HTTP Analyzer. The issue is for some reason or other your PATH variable is damaged which Mercurial relies on.

To check this is the case open a cmd window and type notepad. If this fails then your PATH is damaged. Verify the c:\windows\system32 folder is present in PATH. If it is then make a dummy change to path, press ok, and then revert your dummy change. You'll have to the restart Eclipse.
