Launcher unable to locate shared library [message #1821104] Wed, 05 February 2020 16:10 Go to next message

I've been trying to install Eclipse for Java Developers on some lab computers for the county school system work in IT for. Once installed under a domain admin account it will launch fine. But when any other user tries to launch it with their standard domain account they get the message: "The Eclipse executable launcher was unable to locate its companion shared library"

I have installed as a local admin, my domain admin account, and edited the properties for the shortcuts like I see recommended. I have spent about 6 hours total on this and have reached the end of the road. I've gone into the Eclipse directory properties security tab and granted full permissions to both all local users and all domain users. Still nada.

Any help to get this working wold be SO appreciated.

Thanks!

Did you install using the installer or by unpacking a packaged download?

If you used the installer, read the information (available via the installer's menu, Ask a Question), about the bundle pool.

https://www.eclipse.org/setups/installer/question/

I.e., either you should disable the shared bundle pool or you should ensure its folder is visible and read-only. The installation folder itself should also be visible and read-only.

An exe option was the only option I recall being given. After installing a box comes up with sever components you can choose. I chose the Java for Developers option and checked the box to Install for All Users. The shortcut appears on the desktops for different users that log in, but they get the error message I attached.

Is there a different way I should be installing on PCs that have multiple different domain users logging in with domain rights?

I'll check on the read-only thing.

Thanks!
