Installing plugins overwrites eclipse.ini [message #1753788] Fri, 10 February 2017 09:11 Go to next message

I recently installed Eclipse Neon on Windows 8 and added the following two lines to the start of the eclipse.ini file.


Anytime I have installed plugins it seems to overwrite the eclipse.ini file back to what it originally was. (The extra lines I added disappear and I have to re-add them again).

Does anybody know how to fix this?

I don't generally expect that an update will modify the -vm argument in the eclipse.ini... Next time you try this, keep a copy of the original content and show us what the file looks like before and after the update.
