Hi, All:

I am trying to export a .product. But the launcher exe won't get created!

Here are some details:
- Windows 7, 64-bit.
- Eclipse RCP 4.3, updated to the latest: Version Kepler Service Release 1, Build id: 20130919-0819.
- The application is a GUI of org.eclipse.e4.ui.workbench.swt.E4Application.
- [Overview]
-- Checked: The product includes native launcher artifacts.
-- based on plug-ins.
- [Dependencies]
-- Added org.eclipse.equinox.launcher and org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.win32.x86_64.
-- Clicked "Add Required Plug-ins".
- [Configuration] Leave "Generate a default config.ini file" checked.
- [Launching]:
-- Tried both no Execution Environment specified and JavaSE 1.7.
-- Checked: Use a single ICO file.
- [Splash] specified.

Any pointer would be highly appreciated!!!

- Charles

Hi,

do you export the product from within your IDE? Are there any log
messages or errors?

Regards

Jonas

I got it work by creating another product configuration. Yes, I was exporting product from with the Eclipse IDE.

However, I still don't understand exactly what went wrong.

Once you have exported you product using the Product Export Wizard, you will have a folder that includes an exe for launching your RCP application.

If you then want to create a packaged version for installing from a single exe, I've used the Nullsoft Scriptable Install System in the past. Comes with some good examples, lets you easily create start menu entries and an uninstaller.

If you install EclipseNSIS you can use its wizard to create the installer. New->Other->EclipseNSIS->NSIS Script. Takes you through it step by step and creates the script for you. You can also then run your installer build script right from eclipse.

By default, a newly created product file has the setting: includeLaunchers="true". The original, not working, one has it probably set it to "false".
