Download and Installation of LogViewer


The installation of the LogViewer is rather easy as we provide an online update site and an update site archive for offline installation. Both are installed via the Eclipse update manager.

Online UpdateSite Install

As of Eclipse Europa (3.3) with every new release the installation system has changed. It's annoying, but unchangeable, so we provide an how-to for 3.3, 3.4 and 3.5 and we hope after 3.5 there are no more changes in that system.

We assume you have started Eclipse already.

Manual Install: Update Site Archive (The ZIP way)

Our prefered way to install LogViewer is over the update site, but you can download the update site as an archive and install it from there as it was the online update site. (It is supposed to be better than unpacking it and put the files manualy in the Eclipse installation. The "dropin" of Eclipse P2 Installation System doesn't do it's jobs very well.)

Update Site Archive

Installing via an update site archive is nearly the same as using the online update site, you only have to set the archive as update site location instead of the url of the online update site. Of course, you have to download the archive from our download site before: (choose the latested update site archive)
