    I have downloaded lazy version of eclipse 4 and I have 64 bit JDK 7 installed with JavaFX, the e(fx)clipse wasn’t able to locate JavaFX runtime, and when I try to point JDK installation in preferences I was not able to press OK button to store, it just stalls.

      Please ask questions on our forum!forum/efxclipse. Are you sure your eclipse is launching with JDK7? If you want to point eclipse to an install, only the JavaFX-SDK is supported! Like said please ask at our forum if you need more support.
