I cannot directly answer your question, but we have observed similar
problems with P2. Our solution was the following: Our setup program
added to the .ini file (This is the one parallel to the .exe) of our RCP
product an entry
In addition, the setup prepares a directory at /some_absolute_path/,
where all users have read and write access. On Windows 7, we decided
that to be some sub-directory of "ProgramData" (The environment
variables %ALLUSERSPROFILE% or %ProgramData% point to this). Note that
it will not be sufficient to create a sub-dir of "ProgramData" alone,
you also have to assign explicit rights to all users.
The reason for this process is to realize that the setup has knowledge
of the configuration area. Without explicitly setting it, the
Eclipse-mechanism will find out that it cannot write to the Program
Files dir after completion of setup (First start for example) and will
create a fallback directory somewhere in a .eclipse dir of the current
Should you find out some more appropriate solution, feedback would be
