The way I do it is to simply check out the CDT plugins in the first
Then launch the second eclipse.  You may want to check the plugins tab
your launch configuration before you start the second eclipse and make
the new CDT plugins are selected.

Personally, I run this without an installed CDT.  That is how I make
sure that my new code is actually running :-)

That is probably because you are selecting a file when you right-click.
Make sure you select the top element of the plugin.

Enjoy :-)
