Hello all, sorry for the newb problem. I've downloaded the:, I extracted the files, which then proceeds to list the file contents, I run the executable file but then it says:

"This application may depend on other compressed files in this folder. "For the application to run properly, it is recommended that you first extract all files." And lists buttons to Extract All, Run, and Cancel.

So I've already extracted the files yet it keeps telling me I need to extract the files. If I click on "Extract All" again it brings up a window saying:

"This destination has 1418 files with the same names." And gives the options to Replace files, Skip files, or Let the user decided for each file.

If I click on Run, I get an error message: "The Eclipse executable launcher was unable to locate it's companion shared library."

I've tried re-installing but still the same issue. Any idea what the problem might be?

Thanks for any help

Don't use Windows Explorer to extract from zip files. The directory
structures must be retained. A stand-alone tool like WinRAR will do
a better job.
