I spent a little time tonight trying to figure out the included conflicting dependency message I was getting when attempting to install the Groovy Eclipse plugin. Despite the dependency message, the way to resolve this for me was to start Eclipse as Administrator and then install the plugin. Once I did this, the Groovy plugin installed just fine.


Cannot complete the install because of a conflicting dependency.

    Thank you for posting this! It helped me solve a similar problem while attempting to update the Eclipse IDE (Helios for PHP) to the latest version. Best regards – Di.

  2. Gabriel says:

    Thanks, this has been puzzling me for a while now, in my case just preventing updates (over a dependency issue, which made no sense), but I’d just skip them… until now when I couldn’t install something because my Eclipse was too old…

    Thanks for the post, fixed it for me too.

  3. Eric Miller says:

    On Windows 7 need to turn off UAC if Eclipse is installed under program files. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/975787

  4. This worked for me, thanks for the post.

    Thanks for posting, it really helped!
    Sounds like the obvious solution, since I installed Eclipse under Program Files, but I just didn’t figure it out.

  8. Dave says:

    Excellent – simple fix, but I never would have thought of it on a Monday morning.

    Thanks! =)

  9. Sandro says:

    Many thanks!
    I also resolved my problem when I try to install with in Eclipse Indigo the ADT Android

    from istall new software: http://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse/

    cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found. eclipse indigo …………….

  10. Nicky says:

    Big up! Thanks nuff nuff for sharing! It solved my Google App Engine plugin problem with Indigo! :-)

  11. Brett says:

    Graaaah… Thanks so much! I was completely baffled by dependency issues causing my install to fail! Never would’ve figured this one out. Props.

  12. Mahmud says:

    Alternatively, you could move the Eclipse folder to a drive other than C if you’re using Windows 7…

    I had placed my Eclipse folder in C:\Program Files\eclipse and was seeing these errors. When I moved it to D:\eclipse, it worked fine.

  13. Jim P. says:

    Thanks! This helped in getting the latest updates and then to add Java EE support on Fedora 16. In that case, I needed to switch to root before running the updates.

  14. Ashish says:

    Thanks for the fix. That worked for me.

  15. subhankar says:

    thanks a lot….it worked….
