Greetings, esteemed experts!

A while back, I installed the Eclipse IDE on my Windows 7 Ultimate home pc. Since I've now transitioned to using NetBeans for my Java development, I'd like to uninstall Eclipse. But, I don't see an "Install / Uninstall" option in Control Panel (as I did in Windows XP).

How can I uninstall Eclipse?

Thanks for your guidance!

Last time I installed Eclipse, there was no install. It's simply a folder that you can delete.

Yes , you simply delete the eclipse folder , unless you have not installed other programs like app servers and JREs during installation

Are we sure there are no Windows registry entries?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

From Eclipse.org:

To install Eclipse, all you do is unpack the zip file download in the desired directory. No further work is required (other than making sure you have a Java Run-time Engine installed). When you unzip the file, it creates a sub-directory called "eclipse", with multiple sub-directories under that. So, for example, in Windows you could unpack the zip file in the root directory (e.g., C:\) and Eclipse would be installed in C:\eclipse. Note that installing Eclipse does not change the Windows registry. (emphasis mine)

Thus, no "uninstall" is required or in fact possible, as the software is not installed (excepting the JDK).
