java.lang.NullPointerException Packaging projects



I can not package any projects (even the basic project auto created as new blackberry project) on eclipse indigo with the new blackberry eclipse plugin.


I always get this error:

How were the plug-ins installed?  Did you use the full installer or the update site?


Have you installed both the BlackBerry Java Plug-in for Eclipse and a BlackBerry Java SDK?


If so, can you try to create a new workspace?

I used update site to install the plugins.

I do create a new workspace as you recommended and could package and sign the application successfully.


Thanks a lot!!!

Re: java.lang.NullPointerException Packaging projects

It resolves if I create a new workspace, but now I'm having RunTimeException (which didnt appear when I used the old workspace and just clicking through the NullPointerException warning) and I lost my installed JRE 6.00.
