Hello everybody,

thanks for reading this post. Actually I am unable to export an RCP product to be standalone. I am working with Kepler 4.3.0 on Ubuntu 13.10 64 bit. Today I downloaded a fresh Kepler and a belonging delta pack. I created a fresh product definition. I am developing a feature based product, which runs fine in the eclipse IDE.
I ran into problems that sound similar to a couple of posts I found here and elsewhere, but actually I am not able to solve it :
- When exporting the product just for my Ubuntu platform, the export process works fine, but ends up with a launcher that cannot start. It seems that this is an executable, but does not execute.
- When trying to export to multiple platforms, I stumbled over the wellknown "Cannot find plugin xxxxlauncherxxx. But the delta pack fits exactly to the IDE, and all the launchers are visible in the target. The target by the way is created into a seperate project, as recommended in the book "Eclipse Rich client Platform" by Affer, Lemieux and Aniszcyk.
Now I am totally stucked. Is anyone out there able and willing to help?
If there is any more information necessary, I will of course provide it immidiately...

Thanks in advance!

I found that the PDE export functionality is just plain broken for anything but Hello World. I found that Tycho mostly solved my issues, but still have some specific issues to resolve that seem related to the product's classpath when running standalone vs as a child of the eclipse ide via Run.. or Debug...
