I'm trying to setup Eclipse for ArcGIS Engine 10.0 development. I've been reading for days and weeks through the documentation and through the forums here and elsewhere. It seems that no one has this same problem. My issue is that I'm stuck at the point of installing the ArcGIS plug-in for Eclipse. I'm going through the steps in the ArcGIS Resource Center here. It says to create an ArcGIS local update site at this directory:


The problem is that my directory structure is missing the engine folder. Does anyone know how I can get the engine folder and its contents? Or any other solution?

I think the documentation is wrong... try %ProgramFiles(x86)%\ArcGIS\DeveloperKit10.0\java\tools\eclipse_plugin\arcgis_update_site\arcobjects

Wow I could have sworn I tried that before but I just went and tried it again and it worked just fine. Much appreciated. – Kyle M Dec 4 '12 at 2:03
