Hi,

I have exported an eclipse product using a product configuration. When I launched it before export, the customized splash screen comes and it works as I expected. But when I export it, it launches, but the splash screen doesn't appear. Can someone help me on this.

Thanks in advance,
Janaka

Make sure you specify the bundle containing the splash screen in
the .product file on the splash tab.

Depending on how the product is built, there are some cases where this works
even if you don't specify the bundle, but there other cases where it
doesn't.

If that isn't the problem, make sure the splash.bmp is getting included in
the exported version of its bundle. check that splash.bmp is listed on the
bin.includes property in the build.properties file of the plugin.

Thanks - had done that. We did find that if we opened the splash.bmp
with an editor on Windows and saved it as a bmp once again, the file
size dropped by about a third, and then the image became visible as a
splash screen. When I inspect the two images (before and after the
Windows save) with an editor on the Mac I can find little difference
except the Mac version had a resolution of 72 by 72, and the other
version was 96 by 96, but was still smaller in size. Overall screen
shot was 500 by 330.

So the upshot is that something about the color depth or color
resolution affected whether it could be used in Windows as a splash
screen - have not yet figured out the details, but problem accidentally
solved by my partner.
