I am an Eclipse committer and work with clients writing custom Eclipse
plug-ins and applications.
As a first step, check that -consoleLog is one of the Program Arguments of
your launch config (Run > Run Configurations... > Pick you config from the
tree under 'Eclipse Application' > Switch to the Arguments tab > Check the
'Program Arguments' box). Or, if you have installed the plug-in already,
just launch: eclipse.exe -consoleLog
This will ensure that error log entries and warnings get printed on the
console. Hopefully this will give us some more information to work with.
Feel free to mail me directly, to reduce the mail volume on the list.
