Having virtualized a lot of programs, I sometimes get the impression that fslrdr folder size is increasing abnormously with its use.

The problem could depend on a dirty virtualization: in fact in such a case it could happen that a program folder increases at every new activation.

You could be obliged, to know which is the wrong installation, to inspect many direcories/subdirectories of fslrdr, looking for the one collecting excessive data: a painfull task as every virtualized program generates a plethora of subfolders, many of them empty and some full of subdirectories; furthermore SVS does not maintain a clear match within the name of your program, or the name that you assign to the virtualized prgm, and its subfolder in fslrdr.

Version(s): Eclispe 3.1.1

Capture Method: There is no install routine to install Eclipse. It is a standalone application that just comes compressed in a zip file. Eclipse is still easy to install. Create an empty layer and edit it. Unzip Eclipse and drag the directory where you unzipped Eclipse to the layer in the advanced layer editor.

You need the Java SDK to use Eclipse. The Java SDK may also be in a Virtual Software Package.

It may be nice on a reset to have the features\plugging stick. You can do this by moving them from the Writeable sub layer to the Read-only sub layer.

Also, all files created with Eclipse are actually created by the Java Runtime. If Java is in a VSP all the .java .class files will be in the Java package. It is Highly recommended that you create a data layer for Eclipse to help manage data. If you reset the Java layer you will loose all your Eclipse work.

DLC is not a good tool for this application. Java only registers ....
