Can you describe more about how you are adding the help plug-in to
Eclipse 3.3 and 3.4?

Yes, things have changed between the two versions. In Eclipse 3.4, the
method for providing plug-ins has changed. You can't simply add a new
plug-in to the plugins directory any more. There is a "dropins"
directory into which you can drop plug-ins. Sometimes you have to use
the -clean parameter on startup to ensure that Eclipse recognizes to
check the dropins directory.

Did you create your help plug-in with PDE or some other tool?

Best regards,
Lee Anne
