I need some assistance with installing the Blackberry Eclipse Plugin.
In May, I successfully downloaded the all-in-one eclipse and Blackberry plug-in 7.0. I had a lot of difficulty then, but now with the new release 7.1, my previous solution is not working (which was re-adding the plugin through the update site in eclipse) I believe.
The problem I am having is eclipse installs fine, but it won't recognize the blackberry features - ie it doesn't have the "blackberry perspective" or "blackberry project" or any simulator items. The component pack and simulator files are all in the directory.
I have tried:
-Installing the all-in-one plug-in on (where there are no other eclipse installations).
-Installing basic eclipse 3.7 x86, then attempting to use the update site http://www.blackberry.com/developers/jar/win/java
(sometimes this link won't connect, but I got it to connect once so that I could install the core plug-in and BB SDK 7.1) - still will not recognize the blackberry features.
Technology used: Windows 7 x64, Jre 6 x86
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!
Solved! Go to Solution.

I should also probably mention, that the reason I have to re-install the blackberry plugin is because I had to upgrade my pc from xp to Win 7. So I lost the previous install and all the painstaking configurations!

I solved my own problem:
Why this is like this, I have no idea, but if you want to "activate" the Blackberry features you must go to "Run Configurations" - The below screen will pop-up > select "Add Required Plug-ins" on the right hand side, it should populate all the plugins you have downloaded, then hit run. It will open a new instance of eclipse with all of the blackberry features.
