Installed Eclipse 2019-12 with admin rights in the directory C:\Program Files (x86)\Eclipse CPP. To the eclipse.ini I have added the following lines:

osgi.configuration.area=@user.home/AppData/Roaming/Eclipse/configuration
osgi.sharedConfiguration.area=/configuration 
osgi.configuration.cascaded=true


The full eclipse.ini therefore reads:
-startup
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.5.600.v20191014-2022.jar
--launcher.library
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.win32.win32.x86_64_1.1.1100.v20190907-0426
-product
org.eclipse.epp.package.cpp.product
-showsplash
org.eclipse.epp.package.common
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
--launcher.appendVmargs
-vmargs
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.8
-Dosgi.instance.area.default=@user.home/eclipse-workspace
-XX:+UseG1GC
-XX:+UseStringDeduplication
--add-modules=ALL-SYSTEM
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.8
-Dosgi.dataAreaRequiresExplicitInit=true
-Xms256m
-Xmx1024m
--add-modules=ALL-SYSTEM
osgi.configuration.area=@user.home/AppData/Roaming/Eclipse/configuration
osgi.sharedConfiguration.area=/configuration 
osgi.configuration.cascaded=true


On starting eclipse using my ordinary user account it detects all the plug-ins I have installed on my system and asks me if to install them. A great feature, that => I answer with "yes" and eclipse tells me:
<snip>
An error occurred while configuring the installed items
session context was:(profile=epp.package.cpp, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Configure, operand=null --> [R]org.eclipse.platform.ide 4.14.0.I20191210-0610, action=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.touchpoint.natives.actions.MkdirAction).
Could not create directory C:\Program Files (x86)\Eclipse CPP/dropins.

What did I do wrong? Firstly: What is the dropins folder used for in this case (isn't the thing I want installed a plugin instead)? And should the dropins folder not be created in my config dir instead?

Thanks in advance,
Gunter.
