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

Ciao Carsten :)
Sounds like the export operation is including the launchers, but they do
not end up in the repo.
Some more questions:
- What Eclipse version is this?
- In the product config editor, did you checkmark "The product contains
native launcher artifacts" (@see attached pic)?
- In the repo, do you have a "binary" dir, containing things like
"org.eclipse.equinox.executable_root.carbon.macosx.ppc_<version" or
<product name>.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_<version>?
- If nothing seems to work, can you attach the files content.[jar|xml]
and artifacts.[jar|xml] for us to review?
- Finally, can you wrap up the problem in a simple "Steps to reproduce"?
HTH,
Ciao, hh

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:

artifacts.xml
configuration/
eclipse.exe
eclipse.ini
p2/
plugins/
repository/

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.

Cheers,
CarsteN
