When my plugin was installed on eclipse 3.6, context sensitive Help would display for the extensions to the Share Project wizard when the '?' was selected at the bottom of the page. We didn't code anything to display our own Help, but eclipse would pick up our page title within the Share Project wizard, and our title would display when our page displayed, preceded by the word "About", while the rest of the Help below the title pertained to the underlying eclipse platform. When we upgraded to eclipse 3.6.2 instead of "About + <<our page title>>" for the Help window title, all we see is "About", and we get a null pointer exception, see below. Any ideas how to fix? A simple fix would be make it work like it did in eclipse 3.6. A more complex fix is how to implement our Help into the context sensitive Help for our extensions to the Share Project Wizard. Both or either answer would be very helpful.
