org.eclipse.swt.SWTException: Unable to load graphics library [GDI+ is required] (java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError)

This is the SWTException that you might see on the W2K machine. This cause for this exception is absence of GDI+ library (gdiplus.dll) on Windows 2000. On WindowsXP and Vista they come by default and its taken care of.
Don’t be dis-hearted by this, you can download from Microsoft site and every thing should work fine. For those who want to have some additional information…
