Many in the android developer world that are new to Eclipse claim that Eclipse is hard to install. Want to know a secret?  Here are the steps to an easy eclipse install.

 

1. Download the SrpringSource ToolSuite. Why? Because once the is installed, most of Eclipse is already pre-installed in that install.

2. Now, do not touch the Indigo install or use it, remember most Eclipse is already pre-installed by the STS installer.

3. For android other than installing the ADT plugin if you need something like Eclipse CDT install it.

 

That is basically it, not too hard is it? Oh and the STS 2.7.1 does eliminate the 3004 error some of you might have seen on 32-bit systems.
