Run Eclipse on desktop = can not find the add-in library


I just downloaded Eclipse Juno onto my machine. I extracted the files to an Eclipse subdirectory in "C:\Program Files". When I try to launch eclipse from here, it works great! But I don't want to have to navigate to this directory every time I want to launch eclipse. I tried just moving the executable to my Desktop, but then when I try to run it I get this message:

The eclipse executable launcher was unable to locate its companion library.

How do I let eclipse know where it's companion library is if I don't plan to have them in the same folder? Please be very specific.


You dont move the executable to your desktop because the executable needs to be in the same directory with other files where it was. get it back and then make a shortcut or link to it. you are free to make the shortcut or link where you want.
