Hallo

sorry to repost, but there has not been any reaction on the Equinox forum, so I thought I would try it here:

We have multiple RCP applications running on windows. Each of these applications uses about 90% of the same plugins. I would like all plugins to be in same folder for easier provisioning and updating.

I have tried 2 different scenarios, but I am having trouble to set this up. Any help is very welcome!

Please have a look at my post on the equniox forum for details:

Thanks for the help!

Greetings
Christoph

You can use a "shared dropins directory" to avoid the copy altogether.

Modify tour eclipse.ini for both installation:

-Dorg.eclipse.equinox.p2.reconciler.dropins.directory=/<myPath>/mySharedDropins

Hi Sumit

thanks for your input! Unfortunately, this alone does not do the trick. The executable still starts with an error: "The executable launcher was unable to locate its companion shared library".

Greetings
Christoph
