Launching eclipse from a non-Admin account
posted 2 weeks ago
I've encountered a strange problem. I installed Eclipse in my regular Admin account. I then created a second, non-Admin (user) account, logged on to it, and tried to launch Eclipse.
When I do I get the error:
"The Eclipse executable launcher was unable to locate its companion shared library."
If I create a shortcut and set the properties to "Run As Administrator", and launch it, I get the prompt for my admin password, and when I successfully enter it, it works!
Is there some file permission issue that prevents Eclipse from running without Admin privileges? Having to run Eclipse as Administrator seems to defeat the purpose of having a user account.
Boost this thread!
