Which version did I install? [message #1828981] Tue, 23 June 2020 15:12 Go to next message

I'd like to install Eclipse on a Windows 10 PC in the same configuration as I have installed on a different Windows 10 PC. When I run the Eclipse Installer, it gives me a list of configurations to choose from (the first one is Eclipse IDE for Java Developers). How can I determine which option I chose originally so I can get the same one?

Thanks!

Look at Help -> About Eclipse IDE. This will tell which product and version thereof that you have installed.

Ed,
Thanks for your response. It doesn't tell me which option I selected with the installer.
Here's what I see:
Version: 2020-06 (4.16)
Build id: I20200604-0540

Additionally, there are about 100 modules installed when I look at Installation Details, but none tells which option I installed (that I can see).

There's also the name of that product as the first thing in that dialog which is the name of the product. The "Version: "tells you the version.

For more technical (exact) details, you can also use Navigate -> Open Setup -> Installation. A reference to the Oomph Product Version that you selected will appear here in the tree view. E.g., "Latest (2020-09) (Eclipse.org - Eclipse IDE for Eclipse Committers)".

You can export the configuration from the reference Eclipse:
File -> Export -> Install -> Installed Software Items to File

It creates a .p2f file which should be copied to the target machine.

In the target machine, install a bare-bones Eclipse (e.g. for Java), open it and import the .p2f:
File -> Import -> Install -> Installed Software Items from File.

Before the operation, please check that the reference Eclipse is up to date, and it is a good idea to let the export wizard check that the modules do exists in repositories.

I'm finally getting back to this.

I've done the export after selecting all of the modules, but the .p2f file contains no data.

I do see, at the very topic of the export popup, an error: "Description file is not set, or is not a normal file"
