Hi All,

I have a standalone RCP app using Indigo 3.7, which is set up to use features. No matter what I do, the features never show up, even when I export the product.

The features.xml uses the same id as the application plugin, but I have also tried setting the branding plugin property explicitly. Im my app plugin, I have both the about.ini and 32x32 gif, and these are definitely checked in the build.properties. I have even checked that they are there in the plugin jar file after export.

about.ini contents:

aboutText=My App
featureImage=myapp32.gif


The exported app works perfectly, except for the about dialog not showing any features. Looking in the Configuration tab on the Installation Details, I can see:


*** Features:

*** Plug-in Registry:
com.ibm.icu (4.4.2.v20110823) "International Components for Unicode for Java (ICU4J)" [Active]
com.my.application (1.0.0.201211271017) "App Name" [Active]
com.my.app.help (1.0.0.201211271017) "App Name Help" [Resolved]
org.apache.commons (1.0.0) "Commons Libraries" [Resolved]
org.apache.log4j (1.0.0) "Log4j code library plugin" [Resolved]

org.eclipse.core.contenttype (3.4.100.v20110423-0524) "Eclipse Content Mechanism" [Starting]
org.eclipse.core.databinding (1.4.0.I20110111-0800) "JFace Data Binding" [Starting]
org.eclipse.core.databinding.beans (1.2.100.I20100824-0800) "JFace Data Binding for JavaBeans" [Resolved]
org.eclipse.core.databinding.observable (1.4.0.I20110222-0800) "JFace Data Binding Observables" [Active]
org.eclipse.core.databinding.property (1.4.0.I20110222-0800) "JFace Data Binding" [Starting]

and so on.

So it looks to me that the feature is not being recognized for some reason, even though the app is still working fine? Has anyone got any ideas, because this does not seem to work. Sad

Thanks in advance.
