java – Installing Genymotion Eclipse plug-in

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment


I have installed Genymotion on my Windows 7 , 32-bit machine. I am working with Eclipse to develop Android apps. I would like to ask what the proper way to install the Genymotion plug-in is.

Going by their website, they provide two JAR files for Eclipse and a note underneath which reads:

The installation of the plugin can be done by launching Eclipse and
going to “Help / Install New Software” menu, then just add a new
Update Site with the following URL:
http://plugins.genymotion.com/eclipse. Follow the steps indicated by
Eclipse. Warning: to use this plugin, Genymotion must be installed on
your system.

I have installed the plug-in from the Eclipse ‘Help’ menu. I havent downloaded any of the two files. Have I done it correctly ?

The two files are:
1. Genymotion Plug-in for Eclipse
2. Mandatory dependency for Eclipse plug-in
