Add Eclipse to Windows 8 app Menu

So I install Eclipse and it doesn't appear on my Windows 8 Metro Interface. What's up with that? Why am I unable to have it appear.

I still don't know why it did not appear (apparently there is some issue with zip files) but thankfully the solution to the problem is simple and straight forward.

1. Make a shortcut of the .exe in question.
2. Right click and cut the shortcut.
3. Navigate to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
4. Right click and paste the shortcut (you can edit the name if necessary)

And there it is - you've added your .exe to the Metro Interface
