Problem installing RTC into an existing eclipse


Bowen Turetzky (2641) | asked Sep 08 '10, 6:59 p.m.
Hello,

I've tried extending an existing eclipse client when installing RTC but have run into a wall.

After having RTC complain about missing patches I found this on ibm's developerworks site which has the required patch plugins.
http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/wikis/display/rationalinstall/Install%20into%20an%20existing%20Eclipse%20instance#InstallintoanexistingEclipseinstance-link17

However, after installing the patches I get a different error:


Offering cannot be installed into this existing Eclipse installation configuration because it has features that are not tolerated by the offering
Feature "org.eclipse.platform.feature" in the existing Eclipse installation does not meet version tolerance "[3.4.2,4.0.0)" for feature "com.ibm.team.scm.svn.feature.client.feature" which is about to be installed
Feature "org.eclipse.rcp.feature" in the existing Eclipse installation does not meet version tolerance "[3.4.200,4.0.0)" for feature "com.ibm.ccl.ua.wizards.feature" which is about to be installed
Feature "org.eclipse.help.feature" in the existing Eclipse installation does not meet version tolerance "[1.0.2,2.0.0)" for feature "org.eclipse.emf.codegen.ecore" which is about to be installed
Feature "org.eclipse.jdt.feature" in the existing Eclipse installation does not meet version tolerance "[3.4.2,4.0.0)" for feature "com.ibm.team.build.feature.ide.feature" which is about to be installed


This is interesting because when I view eclipse those features clearly have a version # within the tolerance so I'm not sure what the problem is. I've tried this with my existing eclipse, a clean download of the RCP/Plugin developer 3.4.2 eclipse and a clean download of the 3.4.2 "classic" eclipse (which is what the link says it works with) and no luck.
