    Eclipse does not "install" in the traditional sense. Each eclipse folder is its own independent instance. This way you can maintain multiple instances of eclipse installations at the same time.

    Keep in mind that after installing ADT plugin, you also will need the ADT itself and configure the plug in to point to the location of the tool before it would work. In short

    - Install ADT + usb driver (if needed)
    - install eclipse
    - Install eclipse ADT plug in + configure it
    - Plug in a device/start up emulator, open up DDMS perspective in eclipse. If you see your device, you are good.
