Greetings! I'm having a bit of a problem that I'm hoping someone here
might be able to help me with. I have an Eclipse RCP product exported
and installed to a user's system with the following directory structure:
C:\Program Files\CompanyName\ProductName\VersionTag\rcp\
-.eclipseproduct
-productLauncher.exe
-productLauncher.ini
+-configuration\
+-features\
+-jre\
+-plugins\

I want to create a shortcut to start the help in the product and have
been trying the following on a command line to test but have been met
with the following exception messages:
C:\Program Files\CompanyName\ProductName\VersionTag\rcp> jre\bin\java
-classpath plugins\org.eclipse.help.base_3.5.3.v021102101200.jar
org.eclipse.help.standalone.Help -command displayHelp -data
"%USERPROFILE%\Application Data\CompanyName\ProductName\workspace"

java.lang.Exception: File C:\Program
Files\CompanyName\ProductName\VersionTag\rcp\eclipse.exe does not
exists. Pass a correct -eclipsehome option
at
org.eclipse.help.internal.standalone.Eclipse.ensureEclipseExeExists(E
clipse.java:168)
at
org.eclipse.help.internal.standalone.Eclipse.prepareCommand(Eclipse.j
ava:46)
at
org.eclipse.help.internal.standalone.Eclipse.run(Eclipse.java:87)

Since the launcher name has been customized in my rcp .product file, I
am unsure of how to overcome this problem.

Hi Sean,
it's a known Eclipse bug:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=135215

As a workaround, you can add the -noexec flag to your command line:
