Eclipse with multiple users

If you have Eclipse installed on a machine and there are multiple users, you’ll find that all users share the same configuration settings. Eclipse incorrectly stores configuration options (such as which workspace is being used) within the installation directly. To fix this, you can change some settings.

For Windows 2000 or later, append the following to INSTALL_DIR\configuration\config.ini:

osgi.configuration.area=@user.home/Local Settings/Application Data/Eclipse/configuration

(“INSTALL_DIR” in the above lines needs to be replaced with the appropriate path.)

    Thanks. This works for BMC’s Remedy Developer Studio (based on Eclipse) as well…
