Hi
I recently tried to use my dad's university machine as a second client for my RTS server, but I didn't get it to install Eclipse properly in his Start menu. - I think I clicked it awake from the zip file. I asked him to leave it minimized on the floor for my next session, but the lab tech had to reboot his machine for some reason and so it's not in the task bar anymore, and it's not clear what I did to run that instance of Eclipse, or if it is stable.
Anyway, what would be simplest, I think, is to be told what is the best, up to date, Java Eclipse download for optimal regular installation on a Windows machine, - to be in the start menu? Luna - ? - What do I click in the zip file - right click it - and select ?
Thanks

Extract the zip eclipse-java-luna-SR1a-win32-x86_64 and go to eclipse-java-luna-SR1a-win32-x86_64 => eclipse. After run eclipse.exe also don't Forget to install the latest Java version.

Eclipse created me an icon in the Start Menu automatically. If not you can Pin it to the Start Menu.
