* Download and install Bazaar (http://bazaar-vcs.org/WindowsDownloads): http://launchpad.net/bzr/2.0/2.0.2/+download/bzr-2.0.2-1-setup.exe

* Download PuTTY (pageant.exe and puttygen.exe): http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html

* Run puttygen.exe. Push "Generate" and follow the instructions. Select "Save public key" and save the key to a file, and do the same for "Save private key".

* Run pageant.exe. This will create an icon in the system tray of a computer with a hat (?) on it. Click on that icon. This will open a window titled "Pageant Key List". Select "Add Key". It will then prompt you for a private key file, which should be the key you generated and saved in the previous step.

* Login into Launchpad.net and go to: https://launchpad.net/people/+me/+editsshkeys

* There you have to copy your PUBLIC key into the text field and click "Import Public key".

* Now, you can choose between two different plug-ins to use Bazaar in combination with your Eclipse projects:

(1) Plugin BzrEclipse: http://bazaar-vcs.org/BzrEclipse
-- Download bzr-xmloutput (https://launchpad.net/bzr-xmloutput): http://launchpad.net/bzr-xmloutput/trunk/0.8.4/+download/bzr-xmloutput-setup-0.8.4.exe
