You need something that looks like (a subset of) the Eclipse
installation directory, which basically means there must be
a lib and possibly lib/i386_nt subdirectory with at least the
following files (this applies to version 5.0)

<eclipsedir>/lib/  (before 5.0 a bunch of .sd files instead)
	other libraries you use (*.pl, *.ecl, *.eco)

	dlls for libraries you use (e.g. edge_finder.dll)

When Eclipse runs, it must be able to find <eclipsedir>.
Normally it does that by looking up the registry entry
where X.Y is the version number.
In the embedded case, you should instead call
ec_set_option_ptr(EC_OPTION_ECLIPSEDIR, "<eclipsedir>");
before you call ec_init(). The registry is then ignored.
