Multiple Eclipse installations - How to control which one?

Hi.

 

With Quartus 22.1 Standard on Windows, I had the recommended Eclipse CDT 8.8.1 installed as described in https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/docs/programmable/683525/21-3/windows-installation.html

It was working fine.

 

Then I also installed a standard Eclipse release from

https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/

 

Now both Quartus(Tools menu) and NiosII Command Shell launch the standard Eclipse (without NiosII support) instead of the CDT 8.8.1 version I placed under \22.1std\nios2sdk\bin\eclipse_nios2\

 

What mechanism controls which Eclipse version is launched? Can I control this?

Can multiple Eclipse versions coexist on a Windows machine?

Hi.

 

The question is not which one I want to use...

 

Eclipse does support to have multiple versions installed:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/16764625/is-it-possible-to-have-multiple-eclipse-installs-on-one-computer

 

The question is why Nios II Software Build Tools for Eclipse starts without the NiosII plugins like "NiosII Application and BSP for Template" even after the generic Eclipse was uninstalled?

 

Best regards

Nikolay

Problem was for some reason suddenly solved...

 

After uninstalling the "normal" Eclipse, the NiosII Eclipse still did not show the Templates.

However after digging down into File -> New -> Others the NiosII Templates could be found. After this, the Templates are now also visible under the File -> New section.

 

Something "hi-jacked" the view, and was restored by some coincident...

Can't explain it, but considering this case closed!
