Installing an EasyEclipse Distribution


Before starting installation, check the Hardware and Operating System requirements, as well as the download size of distribution you wish to install, on the EasyEclipse Distribution page.

Beside the Hardware and Operating System requirements, there are no software requirements. EasyEclipse Distributions should install and run on any machine, without requiring or depending on any third-party software

Installation on Microsoft Windows

To install on Windows, just download and run the installer (extension .exe). It will guide you through the installation; you can leave all default values.

Once installed, the application is available in the Start -> All Programs menu.

Installation on Mac OS X

To install on Mac OS X:

  • Download the disk image file (extension .dmg),
  • Double-click on this file; after extraction and verification, it is opened as a Volume in finder,
  • Double-click Installer Package that this volume contains.
The installation starts; your only choice is choosing the target volumne. Note that we have not tested installing EasyEclipse on external or network volumes.

Once installation is done, you can eject the drive, and move the disk image to the trash.

The software is installed in the /Applications folder: to start EasyEclipse, double-click on its incone in the Finder. You can also drag and drop the icon to the Dock before running it. (Note that a second icon appears in the Dock when EasyEclipe runs; this is a known bug).

Installation on Linux

To install on Linux, just download and extract the tar archive (extension .tar.gz) into any folder. The extracted folder contains an executable file that can be started from the command line, or by double-clicking on it in the Windows Manager.
