The best way to do is to get the file system as a zip file from the eclipse site and then extract it to wherever you want your eclipse to be.
Eclipse website has a bunch of mirror sites where you can download it from. So, choosing the nearest one gets you the software quicker
This page over here has all the possible eclipse downloads listed depending on your requirement.
Because, I work with Java and I work on enterprise application on a windows platform I am downloading the first one listed as ‘Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers (163 MB) If you takes you to a new page with a bunch of mirror sites, then select one and download the software. That gives us the zip file.
I extracted it to my D: directly. (I have my windows installed in my D: so I usually put all my installations into D: Most of you have it as C: So, please don’t follow me blindly!)
That’s it downloading and installing eclipse is done!
Just for convenience, go into the eclipse folder.
Right click on the eclipse.exe –> Send To –>Desktop (Create Shortcut)
Fire it up by double clicking it! Eclipse IDE is all yours now!! Congratulations!
