I have downloaded Eclipse onto my desktop and extracted it from the compressed file using 7-zip. When I try to install Eclipse I keep on getting a window saying that it cannot locate the JDK or JVM on the computer. I have both of these installed on the computer. why can I not install Eclipse? Is there a way that I can install without downloading? I was able to install Eclipse on my 32 bit machines without any problem.|

Assuming you remember which Eclipse package you downloaded, which you
probably chose as 64-bit basing it as you might have done on knowing
you're running 64-bit Windows, you should do one of two possible things.
1) Examine the argument to option -vm in eclipse.ini or, if you did not
add this option, determine what JRE your Windows is using by default
when an application launches. (This might not be 64-bit; it depends on
what you've installed.)
2) Better yet, assuming you have a 64-bit Java installed and know where
it is (the path will NOT be C:\Program Files (x86), but C:\Program
Files), tell Eclipse to use it via the -vm option in eclipse.ini.
Please see http://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse.ini.
If you plan to develop in Java, you'll want to download the latest JDK
(not merely JRE) from Sun and tell Eclipse where you put it via -vm.
Please note that the argument to option -vm goes on the next line below
it. Please also note that this option goes before option -vmargs.
This should get you running.
It's possible to run 32-bit Eclipse on a 32-bit JRE on a 64-bit machine
(but why would you want to do that?).
Hope this helps.
