I had to recently setup force.com IDE for my new laptop and i was facing issues with installing eclipse plugin for juno and kepler versions. Kepler version of eclipse worked but intellisense does not work at all. I would like to get the standalone version of force.com IDE so that i can make it work instead of using eclipse plugins? Could you guys tell me where i can get the force.com ide installer for windows 7?

    have you considered using sublimetext/mavensmate? just wanted to suggest that as an option if you weren't aware of it

I had a hunt a while back and I couldn't find the standalone app, my guess is that its been discontinued.


I talked to the salesforce developer support team 10 mins ago. The standalone Force.com IDE was discontinued in version 27/28.

The plugin is still available (as pointed out by Vamsi Krishna): https://developer.salesforce.com/page/Force.com_IDE_Release_Notes
