In the rcpmail example, the plug-in id is "RCPMail", guess you tried to
install the plug-in "RCPMail", not the product.
Try specifying a product id and install that one.. :)

please do not laugh, but I can now create a launcher again.
The only thing I did was to create an empty product configuration, e.g.
one that was not based on the application I created form the template.
Anyway here is the way to reproduce it (for everything I used the
default settings, NOTHING was changed):
1) Create a new workspace
2) Create a new product based on the RCP Mail Template
3) Create a product configuration with an empty product configuration
4) Make sure the "..native launcher artifacts" is checked
5) Choose the RCPMail product and the application from the newly created
6) In the "Dependencies" tab I selected the new plugin and used "add
7) Used the "Eclipse Product export wizard" to export everything to a
directly that I can access from my web server.
Once finished I start a small bat file that contains this:
org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director ^ -metadataRepository
http://localhost/Test/repository ^ -artifactRepository
http://localhost/Test/repository ^ -installIU RCPMail ^ -destination
C:\Temp\Test ^ -bundlePool C:\Temp\Test ^ -profile profile ^
-profileProperties org.eclipse.update.install.features=true ^ -p2.os
win32 ^ -p2.ws win32 ^ -p2.arch x86 ^ -consoleLog ^ -roaming ^ -debug ^
-vmargs ^ -Dosgi.noShutdown=true
This installs all plugins but not the launcher and I have no idea how to
These steps should be reproducable, if not please let me know.
Thanks for the help and cheers,
