What exactly are you trying to achieve, e.g.,
- use the Oomph Installer to provision a workspace for an existing, registered project (such as Oomph itself)?
- use the Oomph Author's tools (such as the "Setup Project Model" wizard and the "Setup Editor") to create a new project
- use the Oomph Extender's tools (such as the "Setup Task Extension" wizard to create new task implementations?
- or just use the Oomph Runtime (the setup engine) to manage your user preferences (and other things) as setup tasks

I just replied to a similar question in another thread:
Project models must be registered in a project catalog, which, in turn, is registered in our (or your own) index file.
For creating a project setup file please use the "New Project Setup" wizard that we provide. It creates an initial
XYZ.setup file in an existing workspace project. You can edit that file with the Oomph Setup editor and finally drag it
onto a project catalog on the second page of the Oomph Installer (advanced mode, second page "Projects") to be able to
select it test if you can provision a workspace for your new project successfully.
There I forgot to mention that it might also be helpful to "bootstrap" a new project setup model by copying one of the
existing models. In the main menu of Eclipse click on "Navigate -> Open Setup -> Parent Models -> Open Catalog Index".
In the model that's opened you find the "Eclipse.org" project catalog and can select "Open in (Setup|Text) Editor" on

That's definitely possible and not too difficult. I suspect that you ran into the brand new "simple mode" of the Oomph
Installer, which is the default if you run it for the first time. The simple mode is mostly meant to be the simplest
possible replacement for the Eclipse.org download page (plus VM management and optional p2 bundle pooling). To provision
workspaces with registered projects you need to switch to the advanced mode (tool button in the upper right corner). Was
that the problem? If not, please explain what you've tried.
