It's almost unbelievable to me that I can't find this (especially anywhere on the eclipse site), but how do install Eclipse? I'm using Windows 7.
I have downloaded eclipse which was a big zip file. After unzipping it, there is no install file, just apparently an exe to actually run eclipse (that was the first surprise). Running that, it complains that there's no JRE (I thought it would have come with it). So I went and downloaded a JDK. It still couldn't find what it needed so I had to manually modify the Path environment variable to point to jre/bin.
Now it can't find jvm.dll.
I'm sure I could hack around and make this work, but everything I'm doing seems so wrong, and I want to do this the clean & correct way. I swear I installed Eclipse before and definitely didn't need to modify any environment variables.
Are there instructions somewhere that I'm just missing?
