Using an external plugin directory with Eclipse 3.4

Note that a external plugin directory will only work in Eclipse 3.4

  • Create a directory (for your plugins) anywhere you want
  • Download and unzip it in your directory (keep the directory structure from the zip file)
  • Create a shortcut from your eclipse.exe file
  • Edit this shortcut and add in the field “target” the following commands:


  • For example your shortcut should look like this: “C:\eclipse\eclipse.exe” -vmargs“D:\externalPlugin”
