Eclipse and Windows 7

Many users find it difficult to run Eclipse on a Windows 7 operating System.
I downloaded Eclipse and the latest Java SDK on a Windows 7 Home Basic Edition and it works absolutely fine. 

What is Eclipse : 
Eclipse is an open source community, whose projects are focused on building an open development platform comprised of extensible frameworks, tools and runtimes for building, deploying and managing software across the lifecycle. 

Download Eclipse from here
Once downloaded, Extract it in a Folder.
Eclipse doesnt needs an installation.
Now we need a Java SDK (Software Development Kit)
Download the Java SDK from here

Just ensure that you are downloading the appropriate package from the Java downloads in order to avoid any trouble.
Hope that resolves the issue.
If it doesnt, kindly reply to the post and i will find a solution for you.

Cheers !!!
