Re: [p2-dev] Cannot install features into a runtime workbench

Disable this option and instead point your runtime workbench to an eclipse install that is in the desired starting state by setting the following VM properties (make sure to adjust the value of the properties)

-Declipse.p2.data.area=/Applications/eclipse/p2/
-Declipse.p2.profile=SDKProfile
