Hello, I searched and searched. Has anyone ever configured BIRT (the report feature) with Eclipse?

These are the instructions I observed and I wondered if anyone had any suggestions/departures from these directions:

Optional Eclipse Link File
If you are installing the framework, you can download the BIRT framework and unzip the contents to any directory.

After doing this, create a links directory in your installed Eclipse location (ie C:\eclipse\links).
Within this directory create a file with a unique name like birt.link.
Open the file you just created and enter path=drive:/pathtobirt (ie path=c:/birt)

Thanks,
Midani

yes I have unzipped it in my c:\downloads directory. I am unsure as to what to do with it at this time to make it work with Eclipse.

Thanks,
Michele

Okay I cannot do the software updates version option.

I have a different question. I believe I understand what I need to do with the BIRT plug in files, however, not with the run-time, see as follows:


What am I supposed to do with the BIRT run-time? The instructions are not clear.

http://download.eclipse.org/birt/downloads/index2.6.2.php
and
http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/download.php?file=/birt/downloads/drops/R-R1-2_6_2-201102191842/birt-runtime-2_6_2.zip

Thanks,
