The Buckminster headless installer is still relying on the old
org.eclipse.update functionality when it installs features (subject to
change of course). Lately we discovered a strange error. On a windows
machine, although the installation succeeds, the plug-ins that were
installed will only be recognized by the runtime if the installation is
done on drive C:. If we install to any other drive, the new plug-ins
will not start. If I add them manually to the configuration/config.ini,
the run just fine.
I suspect this is a bug in the org.eclipse.update.configurator but until
we find some time to actually move all of the code over to p2, we need
to fix this problem somehow and I would like some advice. What's the
quickest way to make this work?
