Happy to hear that this is working fine for you. I'm sure that many ppl
in the community would be appreciative if you could document how you did this on the wiki.

Fwk admin tries to mimic the behavior of the eclipse launcher / launcher.jar and at this
stage I'm not sure if the launcher supports a mode where the path to launcher jar is enough to
bootstrap the system and find the org.eclipse.osgi jar in a setup like you have.
Did you try removing the -install argument? Does the system start? Are eclipse.ini / config.ini / etc read properly?
Is -install the only problematic argument?
