[copying this to the UA newsgroup]
What I was trying to say is that I'm pretty sure that whenever a new
plugin is installed that contributes to universal welcome, the welcome
view will be shown the next time Eclipse starts. At least, that has been
my observation as we've recently started using Universal Welcome in our
product.

Hope this helps,
Eric

Thanks a lot Rizzo. Understood the way it works.
My problem is that it means I have to tie my features to a specific
product. I can't develop a generic "Welcome to my feature" screen like
in the past in a generic way. Now, I need to build features forEclipse,
RAD, RSA, etc... including the correct extension in each build. Right?

Any suggestion?
Once again, thanks for your comments,

Chemi.
