How to suppress exit prompt eclipse

In Eclipse, when we go to preferences we have below checkbox.

When we uncheck the 2nd checkbox we won't get below prompt when we exit the application.

But this setting is saving to only one use and that also in Workspace folder.

Can we keep this setting for all users and also without setting the workbench folder.

Use your favourite lightweight snapshot tool (InControl/Picture Taker/InstallRite et al) to capture what setting is changed when you unselect the option.
It'll most likely be a config file (.ini or .xml) or a registry change - probably in the user space.

Once you have your setting confirmed, by adding it directly to the correct area whilst the application is closed and launching, you can incorporate this into your deployment package.

If it's an MSI, then you'd be looking at self-healing or ActiveSetup - depending on whether you have advertised entry points to trigger the repair or not. If it's not then you may be looking at an AS script to perform the propagation of the setting.

If you're lucky, and it doesn't happen very often, there may be a corresponding system location (HKLM or application folder) where you can apply the setting for all users of the application.

Hope that helps,

  • Hi Dunnpy,

    This setting is not getting captured in picture taker/installrite.

    The setting is saved in user's workspace folder (which is the projects root folder set when the user launches the app).So it is user specific and we don't know the location until the user launches the app and selects it.

    But my query is to check any machine specific setting for this instead of user specific so that this checkbox is disabled by default.

    Need machine specific setting but not user specific through Activesetup. - ur00361883 6 years ago

I see what you mean...I had a couple of minutes, so I downloaded the IDE to see what I could see.

It appears that there are some general settings that can be configured.
This post seems to be what you're looking for - there may be a more complete solution on the forums there.

This post gave me an idea of where to start looking in general.

Hope that helps,
