I'd get this working first. I've never had a problem doing this. Without
knowing the error hard to say what the problem is. If it is related to
Subclipse, then I'd probably make sure you have all our projects in your
workspace. Also note, that our trunk code is for Subclipse 1.10. So you
should have the 1.8.x branch checked out if that is the version you are
trying to work with.

Make sure the Eclipse launcher is configured to use all workspace plugins.
 The defaults are what I use.

I then re-made my changes and then exported the plugin using the File ->

I do not do stuff like that and would not touch dropins with a 10-foot pole
so cannot help you. If I wanted to test this way, I would increment the
version by adding a .1 to the end and then build an update site that I
install from via the normal install process.

There is no reason for launching the runtime to not work though, so I would
not move past that option until it worked.
