I installed the 32-bit on the 32-bit machine and the 64-bit on the 64-bit machine.
I then installed ajdt_2.1.1_for_eclipse_3.6 on the 32-bit system without issue. Installation was through the Help/Software Install. I pointed to the file and AspectJ was installed in about 1-2 minutes. I followed the exact same process for the 64-bit machine and it always hangs on "Fetching org.eclipse.pde.core_3.6.1.v2010090...se.pde.core_3.6.1.v201 0902_r361.jar.pack.gz ".
I searched for a different, 64-bit specific file and found none. Is AspectJ able to run on 64-bit Windows 7?
I would like to use it on my 64-bit system as it is a quadcore with 8GB of RAM while the 32-bit system is a netbook with 2GB of RAM.
Both systems use the same firewall (Norton) but the 32-bit system had no issues. However, to be sure, I disabled the firewall for 15 minutes and tried again - no go. I then disabled the "Contact all update sites..." but then received the error that dependencies could not be resolved. Lastly, I ONLY checked to install the core (top block) and tried again without all update sites. That worked.
