Hi, I've just reformated my laptop and have a clean windows 7 installation and just installed eclipse-cpp-helios-win32. After following Axel's instructions:

Helios is the latest release. I asked because the help page you cited "Before you start..." is old. It was updated for Helios.
Anyway, I would suggest the following:
- remove the installed MinGW and MSys completely
- start Eclipse and goto Help->Install New Software..
- add a new software site by clicking Add button
- enter "Wascana" for the name and in the location field
- select the newly created site and select all but SDL
- follow the further instructions

I recieved the bellow error message.

An error occurred while installing the items session context was:
(profile=epp.package.cpp, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Install, operand=null --> [R]wascana.binutils, action=org.eclipse.cdt.internal.p2.touchpoint.natives.action s.UntarAction).
C:\Program Files\Eclipse\mingw\bin\addr2line.exe (Access is denied)
C:\Program Files\Eclipse\mingw\bin\addr2line.exe (Access is denied)

"C:\Program Files\Eclipse\mingw" was not created during the installation as it is not there. I thought that mingw was suppose to be automatically installed with this version of eclipse? Could it be because I have not been able to check for any updates?

Hello, I have just installed eclipse-cpp-helios-win32. To ensure Helios is up to date, I go to HELP > CHECK FOR UPDATES and get this message: "There are no update sites to search. Do you wish to open the availible Software Sites preferences?" Could someone please specify for me which site(s) I should put in here for Helios? (I have not yet installed any addtional software)...

I have not had any of these complications on previous installs of Halios. Anyone got any ideas on how to fix the Wascara ADD NEW SOFTWARE problem described above?

Thank-you, Michelle

Please don't worry about replying, I fixed it by changing a windows 7 security setting. Eclipse conected to the update/download sites and the mingw folder got created...

windows 7 setting I changed:
