    3. Select "Nothing: Start with an empty target definition".
    4. Add ...
    5. Select Software Site
    6. Add ​http://download.eclipse.org/efxclipse/runtime-nightly/site as a site or http://download.eclipse.org/efxclipse/runtime-released/$VERSION/site where $VERSION should be replaced with the release you want to use
    7. Expand "FX Target" and check "Target Platform for Eclipse" and uncheck "Include required software"
    8. Finish and activate the new target.
