Usually Ive installed Eclipse then installed the Force.com IDE through Help > Install New Software but recently that has not been working at all.
So I followed the steps to download the standalone Force.com IDE and then tried to upgrade Eclipse after the install and this is when all the issues started.
So if like me you have tried to follow the steps in http://wiki.developerforce.com/page/Force.com_IDE_Installation
When you come to
"Go to the HELP menu item in the IDE, select the Software and Workspace Center, and then click on the "Apply" button in the dashboard tab. You may find that the Apply button does not exist in your UI -- if so, see if you can find something on the Developer Boards."
You may find like I did that the Apply button doesn't exist
Do make sure you have downloaded the correct version of JDK 32 or 64 bit first.
Download the next to latest version of Eclipse from http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/
Extract to a separate folder than the standalone Force.com IDE
Copy the contents of the Eclipse folder and Replace the contents of the folder where the standalone Force.com IDE was installed.
Now restart Eclipse
Go to Help > Install New Software and this time you will be able to upgrade the Force.com IDE successfully.
Yes this is a pain but this was the only way I could get Force.com IDE to be installed if the Apply button in the Pulse Explorer doesnt exist.
Hope this helps everyone!
