Installing and Running FDT
From FDT Documentation
FDT is distributed in two ways: as an Eclipse plug-in and as a stand alone application. The stand alone installation is recommended for users new to the Eclipse platform or for users who want a straightforward install of FDT. FDT as an Eclipse plug-in is useful to users who are familiar with the Eclipse and want to extend a particular Eclipse distribution to include FDT. FDT 4 uses the Galileo ( 3.5 ) distribution of Eclipse and supports Eclipse Helios ( 3.6 ).
When FDT is first installed and run, it will begin a 30 day trial. The 30 day trial is designed to give users a chance to use FDT and become familiar with it’s features. After 30 days, FDT will operate in ‘restricted mode’, limiting it’s capabilities. If FDT is registered with a valid licence key, it will unlock features associated with the provided key.
Stand alone InstallationBefore installing FDT, users should make sure they have a compatible version of Java installed. Verify Java Version site .
To download FDT’s installer, navigate to FDT’s homepage and download a distribution of FDT that is compatible for the target operating system. For OSX users, the FDT installation application is distributed as a zip  that will need to be unarchived prior to launching. FDT for Windows is distributed as an .exe  that can be simply run. When the installer launches , follow the on screen instructions to choose an installation directory and if desired any aliases ( OSX ) or shortcuts ( Windows ).
