RE: [p2-dev] How to install the launcher during the initial provisioning

Hi Helmut,

Thanks for the answer.

But I am not sure what you mean.
I do have the delta packs installed, that's why I can export the product
and get a layout like this in the directory I exported to:


I used the default settings to export the product itself. To install the
plugins I use the director application and point it to the repository
directory. Otherwise it would not even consider installing anything.
In that directory there is no launcher eclipse.exe, so I am wondering if
there is any p2.inf magic that I need to use to get these files installed
too, as they seem to be outside of the repository and I can not get them
into this directory.

Well I am new to p2 and therefore it might very well be possible that I did
some obviously silly error.
