Hi, I am a new RCP developer and following a set of tutorials given by a co-worker.

I am trying to follow the following steps.

1. Download the Eclipse RCP SDK. First, go the following web page. http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads
2. Locate the version of Eclipse that you wish to target and click on it.
3. Locate the RCP SDK (will be listed as RCP Source Repo) and download it. Make sure to download the RCP SDK, not the RCP Runtime Binary.
4. Create a directory called c:\target\rcp-sdk and extract the SDK into it.
5. In your Eclipse workspace, select Window -> Preferences... from the main menu. Navigate to the Plug-in Development -> Target Platform page.
6. Click Add to add a new target platform. On the second page, leave the defaults and click Next.
7. Name the new target platform RCP Quickstart. Click Add to add content to the target. Select Software Site and click Next.
8. Click Add. Enter RCP SDK in the name field and then click Local. Browse to the c:\target\rcp-sdk directory and click OK.

I downloaded eclipse-RCP-SDK-3.5.2-win32.zip from http://archive.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/drops/R-3.5.2-201002111343/

After I followed the direction, I hit a problem on step 8 and saw the following error message as a pop-up window "Error Contacting Site: No software site found at file:/C:/Development/eclipse/target/rcp-sdk/. Do you wish to edit the location?"

In addition on the "Add Content" window, I saw "No repository found".

Did I miss anything obvious in here?

Hello,

a repository contains an artifact.jar and content.jar file which is not
the case if you download the eclipse-sdk from the eclipse.org homepage
and extract it onto your hard-disk.

You must choose (IMHO) installation and not software site if you add the
components to your target platform.
