Are you running with the compat layer? All you show is part of the
compat layer and you can't simply use it in a plain e4 app.

Like in the other reply please ask such questions on the e4 newsgroup.

The default Eclipse 3 "About Dialog" is not supported but you can easily build your own dialog. See Eclipse Dialog tutorial for several examples.
