Good day,
I am running windows 7 64 bit on a dell laptop.
I have already installed java and netbeans and that
is working. I am trying to install eclipse as the
book I bought refers to eclipse not netbeans.
SO, after downloading eclipse and then unzipping it
the instructions kind of end there. I ran an exe from
the unpacked directory and I see a welcome screen and
I was able to bring up the GUI for eclipse; however,
If I close the windows I can not find any way to just
launch the program.
The downloaded file is jdk-7-windows-i586.exe (32 Bit).
I searched the forum and google did not find any help.
If some one can point me to a install instructions that
enplanes the steps in more details that would be nice.
