Resolve error while fetching project code in IDE

While working on IDE this week, I started getting below error

Unable to update project properties: Element {}returnFieldDataTypes invalid at this location

Eclipse IDE - MARS.1

I was using Eclipse Mars.1. The reason was that, I updated my IDE to version 36 and my org was supporting API 35 only I guess.
So, I solved it by uninstalling IDE by navigating to “Help | Installation Details | IDE | Uninstall”.

Once, IDE is uninstalled, install it again however with some change as shown in below image.

On first screen of installation, we need to select only “version 35” and uncheck check-box saying “show only the latest version of available software”. After this screen, we need to follow steps as shown in screen.
