Failed to perform Install New Software... [message #729536] Mon, 26 September 2011 08:46 Go to next message

We are using Eclipse 3.6 Platform version with JDK1.6 on WinXP machines.

Issues is regarding eclipse.p2.profile property. When i use eclipse's eclipse.ini for launching eclipse, the action Help -> Install New Software is working fine. Also i noted that the eclipse.p2.profile in Help -> About -> Installation Details -> Configuration tab is set to "PlatformProfile".

When i use the Custom.ini for launching eclipse, i see a problem while execution the same action Help -> Install New Software. It says "Could not locate the running profile instance. The eclipse.p2.data.area and eclipse.p2.profile properties may not be set correctly in this application's config.ini file."

When i tried to debug the problem, i observed that the eclipse.p2.profile property is set to SDKProfile under Help -> About -> Installation Details -> Configuration tab after launching the workbench.

I am assuming that this is causing the problem. Want i would like to understand is that who and why is the property is set to SDKProfile when i am running the Platform version and the corresponding config.ini has the property set as PlatformProfile. Why it is getting reproduced only when i launch with Custom.ini and not reproducible when i launch using eclipse.ini file?

Please help. Attached few files that are of interest to understand the issue.
