Re: Webpage Launcher in 5.0 with Eclipse

Hi realphood,

 

Which Eclipse Plug-in did you download?  Was it the Java plug-in or the Web plug-in?

Re: Webpage Launcher in 5.0 with Eclipse

so I got the JDE 5 and installed java I tried to make the launcher my problems are

 

1) my JDE wont start up again after I quit, it is looking for some 32bit dll

this is a fresh install

 

not entirely sure I am starting the environment correctly

 

I am running Win 7 64bit

 

2)  when it was running and I tried to build the app it did not create a COD file

 

anyone :smileyhappy:   ?

Hi realphood,

 

Right now the JDE is not supported on Win 7 64-bit.  We are working on an update for the Java Eclipse Plug-in so that it will be 64bit Win7 compliant.

Right now the Eclipse Java Plug-in runs on 32bit WinXP/Win7.  The 64bit support will be coming shortly.  Some folks use a Windows VM on their Mac for using the Eclipse Plug-in.

 

You can also check out the following link.  There are some out there that offer creating shortcuts as a service:
