Any FDT related view prompts an error, examples being:
//Opening the perspective view
"Problems opening perspective 'com.powerflasher.fdt.ui.Perspective'
//FDT Build Path in an existing 5.0 project
"Unable to create the selected property page.
An error occurred while automatically activating bundle com.powerflasher.fdt.ui (652)"
//When I attempt to view an .as file
"Could not open the editor: The editor class could not be instantiated. This usually indicates a missing no-arg constructor or that the editor's class name was mistyped in plugin.xml."
//This is the error in the stack I get for opening an .as file.
Caused by: org.osgi.framework.BundleException: The activator com.powerflasher.fdt.ui.FDTUIPlugin for bundle com.powerflasher.fdt.ui is invalid
//At the beginning I get this
My error log contains "Unable to execute early startup code for an extension" com.powerflasher.fdt.ui.welcome.
"Plug-in com.powerflasher.fdt.ui.profiler was unable to load class com.powerflasher.fdt.ui.profiler.Startup"
//and the always useful
Tried creating a new workspace, to no avail.
Using Eclipse 3.6.2
Hope something in there helps us find an answer. Clearly I'm in the minority, and I'm sure I can reinstall 5.0 without hassle but I'd like to use the new version.
We found the issue. FDT 5.5 is not compatible with Helios (Eclipse 3.6). We rely on a structural change which only exists in Eclipse 3.7+ and is not backwards compatible.
Please upgrade your Eclipse to 3.7+ and the issue should go away. Let us know.
