How to remove old versions of Eclipse? [message #1772862] Mon, 18 September 2017 03:55 Go to next message

I installed Eclipse Neon a while back and if I start Eclipse from the program list, this is what starts. However, I have chosen to open .vhd files with Eclipse but when I do this Eclipse Mars starts up. It then asks me whether I want to reconfigure the workspace for the Mars version, which I do not want to do.

Could someone please tell me how to remove the old version or at least get the new version to start when I double click on source files.

Eclipse can be removed by simply deleting it from disk; it doesn't do anything special (ie, Windows Registry) that makes it require any more sophisticated uninstallation.
If you've configured your OS to associate .vhd files with Eclipse Mars, I supposed you could look at/edit that configuration to point to your Eclipse Neon instead. You didn't mention what OS so it's hard to offer specific advice on how to do that (which is outside the scope of Eclipse itself, anyway).
