      Description

      If you enter in a "bad" installation directory for the TC server, then it is difficult to recover from that.

      Steps to reproduce:
      0. Launch Eclipse with a clean workspace.
      1. Go to the Servers view.
      2. Right click and select New->Server
      3. Select Spring Source->SpringSource tc Server v2.1 from the tree of possible servers.
      4. Press the Next button.
      5. Specify an installation directory which is good enough to pass a quick check but bad enough to be wrong later (e.g. plugins/com.springsource.sts.server.tc.tests/testdata/tc-server-developer-2.1.0.RELEASE).
      6. Click Finish.
      7. Run that server (which is wrong, a) because the directory has the wrong contents and b) because the instance wasn't created); get error messages.
      8. Go to the Servers view.
      9. Right click and select New->Server
      10. Select Spring Source->SpringSource tc Server v2.1 from the tree of possible servers.
      11. Select Next.

      At this point, you can't see that there was a problem with the directory, nor how to fix the directory. Yes, on the previous page, there was a note about "Configure runtime environments", but not on this page.
