# Installing the Rational Team Concert client in Eclipse by using the p2 installation repository

You can install the Rational Team Concert™ client into a supported version of Eclipse from the Help > Install New Software menu in Eclipse.

## Before you begin

Install the required set of Eclipse patches. For instruction, see the Required Features in the Eclipse environment section of this Jazz.net article.

The p2 Install Repository is a .zip file that uses an Eclipse update site (or p2 repository) to get Rational Team Concert client features, bundles, and its EMF and GEF dependencies.

## Procedure

2. Extract the .zip file to a directory. For example, C:\dev\eclipse-rtc.
3. Double-click the eclipse.exe executable file in C:\dev\eclipse-rtc\eclipse to open it.
• You need a v1.6 Java Virtual Machine (JVM) in your path for this to work. If needed, you can add the JVM path to the C:\dev\eclipse-rtc\eclipse\eclipse.ini file by adding the following two lines to the file just before vmargs:
-vm
C:\path\to\java.exe
eclipse.exe -nl fr
