I previously had Eclipse installed on my computer but I deleted it long ago. Recently , I want to download it again and start using it.

I downloaded the installer from this link :

the Java version I have is :

openjdk version "11.0.4" 2019-07-16

OpenJDK Runtime Environment AdoptOpenJDK (build 11.0.4+11)

OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM AdoptOpenJDK (build 11.0.4+11, mixed mode)

the JavaC version i have is :
javac 11.0.4

when I run the installer a little pop up appears and then disappears seconds after and that's it. It does not continue to the installation menu.

i noticed that it creates some files in my C directory under my User, these are the file names:

I could not find any crash reports anywhere

This report is somewhat similar but claims the installer hangs:

But the user who reported it never responded to my questions.

In your case, it sounds like the installer terminated unexpectedly.

If you run it from a cmd terminal:
eclipse-inst-jre-win64.exe --debug 1> log1 2> log2
, the log1 and log2 should show where the executable is extracting the installer.

If it gets as far as launching the actual installer application, the last line of log1 will be
Executing: "C:\Users\merks\AppData\Local\Temp\eoi574B.tmp\eclipse-inst.exe"
Any exceptions from the launched installer application will be in C:\Users\merks\AppData\Local\Temp\eoi574B.tmp\configuration\.metadata\.log and that information will be useful to share so I can try to determine why the installer failing is failing. The log1 will also be useful to share if it doesn't get as far as "Executing:" the actual installer executable.

It will be very helpful you can help me track down the problem...

Alternatively, you can download and unzip one of the packages:
