Invalid project description error message returned when importing projects. [message #300526] Fri, 10 March 2006 15:27 Go to next message

Eclipse SDK
Version: 3.1.2
Build id: M20060118-1600

1.) I have twenty-six projects in the directory:

C:\eclipse\workspace\agprojects

2.) In Eclipse, I have my workspace set to:

C:\eclipse\workspace

3.) When I choose, File->Import->Existing Projects into Workspace and set the Select root directory value to:

C:\eclipse\workspace\agprojects

4.) I do get all twenty-six projects listed and checked in the Projects window.

5.) I click Finish and I return this message:

"Invalid project description.

C:\eclipse\workspace\agdayta\app-charts overlaps the workspace location: C:\eclipse\workspace"


How do I correct this, I am new to Eclipse and would appreciate the help.

Thank you,

--Todd

It was not valid in Eclipse 3.1 for a project to be stored in a
sub-directory under the workspace directory. The 26 project directories
need to be moved up to the "workspace" directory, or the "agprojects"
directory needs to be moved outside the workspace directory. This
restriction is being lifted in Eclipse 3.2.
