Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers 2020 Install and Uninstall (PowerShell)


This article will serve as an informative guide and give you a clear understanding of how to perform silent or interactive installs and uninstalls of Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers 2020 using the Powershell App Deployment Toolkit. The PowerShell App Deployment Toolkit can be used to replace your WiseScript, VBScript and Batch wrapper scripts with one versatile, re-usable and extensible tool. This tool is an absolute must for Microsoft Endpoint Manager Configuration Manager (MEMCM) / (SCCM) Administrators or anyone who is responsible for packaging and deploying software.

How to Install Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers 2020 Using the PowerShell App Deployment Toolkit

  1. Download the Powershell App Deployment Toolkit 3.8.3:
  2. Download the zip file to a folder created at (C:\Downloads)
  3. Open Windows PowerShell by Right-Clicking on Windows PowerShell and selecting Run as Administrator
  4. Enter the following command to remove the Zone.Identifier:
    • Unblock-File -Path C:\Downloads\PSAppDeployToolkit_v3.8.3.zip
  5. Enter the following command to extract the contents of the zip file:
    • Expand-Archive -Path C:\Downloads\PSAppDeployToolkit_v3.8.3.zip -DestinationPath C:\Downloads\PADT
  6. Enter the following commands to copy the AppDeployToolkit & Files folders to “C:\Downloads\Eclipse”:
    • Copy-Item -Path "C:\Downloads\PADT\Toolkit\AppDeployToolkit" -Destination "C:\Downloads\Eclipse\AppDeployToolkit" -Recurse
    • Copy-Item -Path "C:\Downloads\PADT\Toolkit\Files" -Destination "C:\Downloads\Eclipse\Files"
  7. We also need to create two additional directories called 7-Zip & Java
    • New-Item "C:\Downloads\Eclipse\Files\7-Zip" -ItemType Directory
    • New-Item "C:\Downloads\Eclipse\Files\Java" -ItemType Directory

You should now see the AppDeploymentToolkit folder with files & the empty Files, 7-Zip & Java folders at “C:\Downloads\Eclipse

Next we’ll want to download 7-Zip, the Java JDK & the Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers zip file.

  1. Navigate to: https://www.7-zip.org/download.html
  2. Click the Download link for the 64-bit x64 .msi
  3. Copy the MSI to “C:\Downloads\Eclipse\Files\7-Zip”
  4. Navigate to: https://www.oracle.com/java/technologies/javase-jdk15-downloads.html
  5. Download the Windows x64 Installer
  6. Copy the EXE to “C:\Downloads\Eclipse\Files\Java”
  7. Navigate to: https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/release/2020-12/r/eclipse-ide-cc-developers
  8. Click the Windows x86_x64 link to download the zip file
  9. Copy the ZIP file to “C:\Downloads\Eclipse\Files”
  10. Copy the PowerShell script below to C:\Downloads\Eclipse & name it Deploy-Eclipse.ps1
<#
.SYNOPSIS
	This script performs the installation or uninstallation of Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers.
	# LICENSE #
	PowerShell App Deployment Toolkit - Provides a set of functions to perform common application deployment tasks on Windows.
	Copyright (C) 2017 - Sean Lillis, Dan Cunningham, Muhammad Mashwani, Aman Motazedian.
	This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or any later version. This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the GNU General Public License for more details.
	You should have received a copy of the GNU Lesser General Public License along with this program. If not, see <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.
.DESCRIPTION
	The script either performs an "Install" deployment type or an "Uninstall" deployment type.
	The install deployment type is broken down into 3 main sections/phases: Pre-Install, Install, and Post-Install.
	The script dot-sources the AppDeployToolkitMain.ps1 script which contains the logic and functions required to install or uninstall an application.
.PARAMETER DeploymentType
	The type of deployment to perform. Default is: Install.
.PARAMETER DeployMode
	Specifies whether the installation should be run in Interactive, Silent, or NonInteractive mode. Default is: Interactive. Options: Interactive = Shows Dialogs, Silent = No Dialogs, NonInteractive = Very Silent, i.e. No Blocking Apps. NonInteractive mode is automatically set if it is detected that the process is not user interactive.
.PARAMETER AllowRebootPassThru
	Allows the 3010 return code (Requires Restart) to be passed back to the parent process (e.g. SCCM) if detected from an installation. If 3010 is passed back to SCCM, a reboot prompt will be triggered.
.PARAMETER TerminalServerMode
	Changes to "user install mode" and back to "user execute mode" for installing/uninstalling applications for Remote Destkop Session Hosts/Citrix servers.
.PARAMETER DisableLogging
	Disables logging to file for the script. Default is: $false.
.EXAMPLE
    PowerShell.exe .\Deploy-Eclipse.ps1 -DeploymentType "Install" -DeployMode "NonInteractive"
.EXAMPLE
    PowerShell.exe .\Deploy-Eclipse.ps1 -DeploymentType "Install" -DeployMode "Silent"
.EXAMPLE
    PowerShell.exe .\Deploy-Eclipse.ps1 -DeploymentType "Install" -DeployMode "Interactive"
.EXAMPLE
    PowerShell.exe .\Deploy-Eclipse.ps1 -DeploymentType "Uninstall" -DeployMode "NonInteractive"
.EXAMPLE
    PowerShell.exe .\Deploy-Eclipse.ps1 -DeploymentType "Uninstall" -DeployMode "Silent"

Ok, all the hard work is done and now you can install or uninstall Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers 2020 using one single PowerShell script. Simply change the DeploymentType parameter to install or uninstall. The script is configured to check if 7-Zip is already installed. It will also remove all existing Java JDK versions prior to installing the version that was copied to the Java directory referenced earlier. Logging functionality is built-in automatically and you can view the log files under “C:\Windows\Logs\Software” for troubleshooting purposes if necessary.
