Doubleclick the Installer and install Eclipse at your preferred location. I always choose a short path near Root without spaces.

Open Eclipse and create a new Workspace at your preferred location.

Now we can go to Help | Install New Software… :

then select the RIM UpdateSite …

———- currently only the full Installer is working for 1.3
