So what am I supposed to do to update my eclipe rtc client with another hour download and fail.  Why isn't your product backward compilable so I wouldn't have to ever install this junk again.

Hm.. I downloaded, unzipped, then used the Eclipse ->Help->add new software, added a relo location where I unzipped and it worked fine.

I am running a later version of eclipse.

I also downloaded the pre-installed eclipse bundle and used that successfully to.

can you tell us more about the Eclipse environment (version, java, etc) you are updating from

So I finally got something downloaded onto a different system  and copied it over the network but then another issue   I would include the image but I can't It complains
The Installation Manager's registry information is inconsistent with its installation information. So off to another 1 hr download hope this works.

Well I finally got the zip to work by downloading it to a different pc and coping it.  The download to my windows8.1 system never ended up with a valid zip. Never had problems with other peoples zips including very large ones.  But of course that was an issue since eclipse doesn't start after doing the update

What a joy updating a product that was at least working

Well Since I have 5 different versions of eclipse I installed into yet another one and this one actually works,
