Value must be an existing directory, when using {eclipse_home} [message #1772031] Mon, 04 September 2017 10:46 Go to next message

In Windows > Preferences > C/C++ > Packages > Packages Folders

I am trying to set a directory to:
{eclipse_home}\Packages
where I've also tried:
{eclipse_home}

And I get "Value must be an existing directory"

If I use the full path:
C:\Progs\eclipse\Packages
All is fine.

Since I am trying to make this package entirely relocatable I would prefer using path variables. Is this possible? If so where am I going wrong?

In all other places I have successfully used {eclipse_home} to denote the eclipse directory path so not the expected behaviour.

Just to be sure, you are using ${eclipse_home} vs. {eclipse_home}, yes?

Many thanks, I will check this evening. It is always possible I haven't included this.

I will post back with my findings, thanks again.

I can confirm I have tried the permutations:
${eclipse_home}Packages
and
${eclipse_home}/Packages
and
${eclipse_home}\Packages

and for each I still get "Value must be an existing directory".

My guess is that it is not being expanded when specifying the Packages Directory.
I don't have that in my current configuration and can't test it.

You may want to submit a bug report.
