I have an old folder with many older releases I like to use.
Reinstalling to obtain the missing reference is impractical .


The Eclipse executable launcher was unable to locate its
companion shared library.

What exactly is "companion shared library."?


I am sure I have it , now I need to know what to look for.

Do you have read and execute permissions for the entire file tree where Eclipse is installed?
