Cannot find/load Eclipse

Jump to solution

I wish to develop C programs for the Edison breakout board.

I cannot seem to find a location that will allow me to install the Intel Eclipse IDE to write and run C programs for it.

I went through the Intel IoT download page to setup the Windows 64 "XDK' and end up with an IDE that only contains NODE.JS , "Hybrid Mobile Apps" – whatever that is, and other stuff. Is there not a simple location just to download a C type IDE interface for the board.

I spent/wasted, a lot of time reading "Installing the Intel® System Studio IoT Edition" from here:-

https://software.intel.com/en-us/installing-the-intel-system-studio-iot-edition https://software.intel.com/en-us/installing-the-intel-system-studio-iot-edition

I went through the 7-zip download etc. but the was no "iss-iot-launcher.bat" file anywhere in the end.

Surly in this day and age, there is a simple way to download an C development IDE for windows 10 for the Edison. What am I doing wrong?

Suggestions please.

Hello monahanz,

 

 

Did you download it from here: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/25871/eng/iss-iot-win_03-14-16.7z? If so, I found it very strange that you can't find iss-iot-launcher.bat. I just downloaded it and I was able to find it. Why don't you try to download it again?

 

 

Remember that Windows 10 by default hides file extensions, you can follow this guide: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/show-hide-file-name-extensions# show-hide-file-name-extensions=windows-7 in order to show them.

 

 

I've experienced some issues where I couldn't start the IDE unless I it was installed on C:\Windows\System32. However, decompressing the files there solved the issue. Why don't you try that? Also, remember to run it with Admin rights.

 

 

Try this and let me know how it goes.

 

 

Peter.

Thanks for the fast reply Peter.

I spent some time today trying to get things to work.

The good news is I re-did the download as you suggested. For some reason windows 10 would not let me put a zip file is \window\System32 folder. Probably for good reason. Anyway I downloaded it to my browser general downloads folder and then made a folder C:\Intel\iss-iot-win in which I placed every file and folder from the expanded downloads folder.

iss-io-launcher.bat was there this time!!!

I ran as Administrator the batch file. Got a popup saying wrong or no JDK. After a few tries (where I had to remove much old Java Development stuff), I did manage to get everything loaded.

Now I have to learn how to actually run the thing. It looks like I have the WiFi connection to the Edison working so if I understand things correctly it will be able to run the code form my PC directly on the Edison board – very nice!
