Can't run DS-5 in 13.1


I'm trying to upgrade to 13.1 of the EDS tools on a Win7 box.  


This may have been caused by a Windows Update but I don't know. After installing the EDS the DS-5 installer started and on the second or third wizard page, a message popped up saying there was a Windows Update pending and it strongly recommended that I reboot before continuing. I rebooted, then ran the DS-5 install from the embedded/ds-5 directory and everything seemed fine. Then I open the Embedded Command Shell as usual, but when I type eclipse to launch DS-5, said DS-5 couldn't be found. At this point I probably could have played with the environment variables a bit and got it working, but instead I uninstalled everything and started over. Now when I try launching DS-5 it throws an error which points me to the error log file. The log file contains the message below.

I've tried uninstalling, rebooting my PC and re-installing, but still get this error. It looks like I'm missing some jar files, but the files are there. Comparing systems to a co-worker who got 13.1 working, we can see that the files are in the right place as well.  


I think there must be a residual file hanging around somewhere that's confusing things, but I don't know where to look. 


Any ideas?

I uninstalled everything again and noticed that <my home directory>/AppData/Roaming/ARM/DS-5/env.ini was left in place. I deleted the entire ARM directory and reinstalled and everything worked this time.
