Installed but can't Activate

Postby Grail » Sat Jul 17, 2004 2:27 am

I'm trying to install Designer_v2.0.1_for_Eclipse3.0 with Eclipse 3.0.0

Following the instructions at ... ation.html it is supposedly installed, as it shows up under:
Help> About Eclipse Platform > Plugin Details

But, I don't see anything about Designer under Window > Preferences like it says in ... vation.htm

Is the tut. out of date? Have I done something wrong? Has it moved in v. 3.0?

Any input would be appreciated.

No. Assuming that Eclipse is configured properly and Designer is installed in the right place, it should show up just fine.

Check your Eclipse ".log" (eclipse/workspace/.metadata directory) for any exceptions that might apply to Designer.

You can also try deleting your Eclipse "configuration" directory and re-strating Eclipse (that directory will be recreated on startup).

I wasn't getting any error logs, I deleted the configuration folder several times, re-installed everything several times, including trying SWT Designer 2.0.0 instead...

then finally, I tried downloading a fresh copy of Eclipse.

Yes, I guess I just downloaded a slightly munted copy of Eclipse.

Well, it's finally working now, so thank you lots for your help.
