Hi,

I was going to give the latest version of the MPC a try,
yet I failed:

Installed from http://download.eclipse.org/mpc/repo
(as announced on the project summary page) yields:

Discovery completed without finding any extensions.
Please check your network connection and try again

The network connection is OK and there's nothing
in the logs.

Trying to install latest from hudson: downloading
https://build.eclipse.org/hudson/job/epp-mpc-nightly/lastSta bleBuild/artifact/
unzip and try to install yields

Location must be absolute: %25update.label
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException

FWIW I'm currently on Eclipse I20100423-0906.

What's the recommended way of trying the latest MPC?

thanks,
Stephan

This is a known problem with initial display of the wizard:

bug 309547: featured/popular URL returns 0 solutions
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=309547

If you click on a different tab or do a search, the problem should go away.

I'm not sure why you're seeing this problem, I'll look into it. I've created a bug to track this problem. You may want
to CC yourself on the bug:

bug 310480: Installation of the latest build into I20100423-0906 fails with exception
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=310480

Installing from a build off of the build server may not always work: these builds often rely on the latest p2 changes
and may also include untested code. If you want to get the latest and greatest, you can try self-hosting with p2
projects in your workspace, or wait until the next milestone build.

Regards,

David
