I followed instructions in "Platform Plug-in Developer Guide" for making
a sample Hello World application as Eclipse plug-in. Currently I haven't
separate eclipse target for plug-in development (I just want to see my
plug-in view in Eclipse SDK). When I try to run this project like
Eclipse application I get this error:

I found similar error here: sg15205.html,
but reseting default location doesn't help.

Try changing the launch configuration (Run>Run...) to your application
id instead of the workbench application id.
