Eclipse/Clearcase plugin error

I’m working with Eclipse and ClearCase at the moment, using the plugin from here:

Unfortunately, Eclipse keeps throwing up an error saying:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Argument not valid: Could not get status information from view

I think I have finally found the cause. It seems ClearCase doesn’t always start up properly on my local PC. When that happens, I have found that manually starting it seems to stop the Eclipse errors. To manually start, go to
C:\Program Files\Rational\ClearCase\Service.EXE (or your lcoal install location)
And select the “Start ClearCase Service” option.
