Eclipse download for Nios II

From my Quartus II or Platform Designer:

If I select from menu: Tools/Nios II software build tools for Eclipse, nothing happens. Do I need to download Eclipse IDE ?

If yes, where is it ? I only see Eclipse IDE for java developers.

Thanks in advance.

I found out what is happening:

It looks like I had to download another file, run it, then extract, another file, and overwrite some of the downloaded files.

I do not understand why do we have to do this nonsense manually, and why Intel did not bother to explain this in the Quartus II download page.

Anyway, the info is here:

Eclipse now launches OK.

Case is resolved.
