Installing Eclipse on Windows

1. Eclipse downloads as a zip file. It does not need to be installed like Java. However, you do have to extract the files to a new folder. Double-click the downloaded file.

2. A Windows Explorer window opens. Click the Extract All Files button located just above the Eclipse folder (see Figure A.3). Choose a location to extract to. By default, the file extracts to the Downloads folder. It is better to install to a folder on the C: drive. If you don’t have administrative privileges on the machine, use the Desktop. Click Next. The files will be extracted to the folder. This operation will also take some time. When completed, the folder with the extracted files will be displayed.
