Trying to install the C++ plugins for eclipse. I'm at the end of the plug in installation and I'm trying to accept the licence agreements to install the plug in, when I select the "accept" radio button the "next" option is still unavailable. Any ideas why this is, I don't think I've selected any plug ins that require special licences, I think all the C/C++ plug ins are open source. Any help would be appreciated.|
The items i'm trying to install are C/C++ Development tools, C/C++ Development tools SDK, C/C++ Library API Documentation Hover help(incubation) CDT Visual C++ Support, XL C/C++ Compiler support.
Should I leave any of these out?

Yes, but you'll run into the same uncertainties. Eventually, you'll want
to continue asking for a hand here if Help -> Install New Software isn't
working for you. Best practice is NOT to download anything and try to
put it in the dropins folder. That's old school (although I'm pretty
sure there are still plug-ins that are distributed that way).
I maintain several Eclipse installations as I wouldn't be tempted to mix
C/C++ development with Java. The Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers will
have all the web stuff and more than you could want for web development.
To that you could add PHP, for example.
It's hard to see why you'd ever be tempted to mix C/C++ with Java, but
hey, I don't know and I have tunnel vision.
Many like to do it all in one Eclipse; others, including me, prefer
separate Eclipses. For example, I won't mix Android with JEE
development, so I keep separate Eclipses, separate workspaces, etc., but
that's how I roll.
As for ASP (bite thy tongue!), I don't know that I've heard of doing
that in Eclipse. If I had to do it, and somehow decided not to slash my
wrists beforehand, I'd probably just use VisualStudio, which I know from
having used it to be a pretty damn good IDE. (It's just the wrong altar
to worship at.)
Best of luck,
