  • Use the "-configuration" command line option and move the configuration area to another location. For example, the user home drive would typically be used.

  • Hello,

    If this is not part of your package;

    Verify why Eclipse can not write to that location

    If this is part of your package;

    Determine if it attempts to write to parts of virtual filesystem or the native profile

  • Hi

    It is trying to take the entries from the base location "c:\users\admin" and poping the error like "c:\users\admin\.eclipse\org.eclipse.platform_3.7.0_1416090908\configuration" is not writable.Please choose a writable location using the '-configuration' command line option".

  • Hi

    It is tyring to access from the base location "c:\users\admin" though the files are not present at this location.

    In fact the files are presented in Virtual File System.

  • Hello,

    What happens if you create the files in the location, where they are not`?

  • From what I can gather, Eclipse tries to write a dll to this folder to determine whether or not it's writable, and this file extension is read only in the VFS.

    If you create this folder locally, the application should work. However, the easiest solution is to not launch the application whilst sequencing so that it does not get captured in the VFS; then the folder will get created in the user profile on first launch.

  • Make sure the %USERPROFILE%\.eclipse folder is not present in the App-V package (and all packages in the group if using connection groups). Then it will try to create the folder on the local file system instead where it will succeed when it tries to write a dll file to it.

  • I found wat causes the issue but no idea how to implement this in Appv .Actual issue is  with the Directory "C:\Users\Admin\AppData\Local\Microsoft\AppV\Client\VFS\4370AB78-64A7-4A3D-A32B-66E5A9E82917\ProgramFilesX64\ApacheDirectoryStudio\plugins"Iam getting below error. if i delete this directory shortcut works fine.but this is package cache, where all the files does not get copied properly.

    we use MSI file to deploy the package. The same package if i publish using powershell it works absolutely fine.Unable to figure out how to get this fixed with MSI any help is appreciated

  • Have you tried this with SP3?

  • To get an eclipse application fully working within the VFS, use the readOnly setting as described in the Eclipse runtime options on help.eclips.org. (I cannot add links with my account)

    During sequencing, start the application for the first time to get the necessary content in the user configuration folder. Then find the configuration folder in the install folder with the config.ini file. Add the line "osgi.configuration.area.readOnly=true".

    Some Eclipse apps will work properly with only this adjustment. Others need to be fine tuned some more by using the referred runtime options. For example, SAP BO Design Studio does not handle the dash in the Workspace folder correctly. So I also had to change the value of the "osgi.instance.area.default"-property.

    Note: If you change the the location of the user configuration folder, normally the application creates the right content automatically. If you use the readOnly setting, it will not. You have to copy the necessary content to that folder manually.
