i have eclipse IDE (which builds my rcp app) installed here:

i tried to relocate the workspace of my rcp app to

i tried that in ?three? different ways, and always ended up in the same result.

1) when starting my rcp application with default settings:
NO -data parameter when launching
its storing its folders/settings in:
views and its positions get saved correct

2) changing my workspace location to user.home/myapp
2.1) launching the product with parameter -data @user.home/myapp
2.2) setting the workspace path by code in Application.start & parameter -data @noDefault

both resolves with storing its folders/setings in:
file:/C:/Documents and Settings/myLogonName/myapp/
BUT: it seems its creating the files over and over again. its not reading any settings from it, as no view is shown although i close the application with views on new positions&resized...

any ideas?

I don't know why it's happening, but you could try debugging it. I think putting a breakpoint in org.eclipse.equinox.launcher's org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.Main's buildLocation().

If you haven't done it yet, you can see some instructions on debugging an Eclipse instance using remote debugging at:
