Hi All,

this is my last attempt to finally get the issue fixed.

I have spend all the weekend now to find a solution but unfortunately, I'm still lost and cannot use RSE any more.

I'm using Eclipse Helios PDT on a Vista 32bit installation. It was working without any problems until some days ago but now, I cannot use it any more as everytime I try to open a remote file through RSE, I get the following error:

RSEF1002 Operation failed. File system input or output error - Message reported from file system: The system cannot find the specified path


I'm asking myself whether there's any possibility of finding out which path cannot be found? The log file only says the following:

eclipse.buildId=M20110210-1200
java.version=1.6.0_24
java.vendor=Sun Microsystems Inc.
BootLoader constants: OS=win32, ARCH=x86, WS=win32, NL=de_DE
Command-line arguments:  -os win32 -ws win32 -arch x86

!ENTRY org.eclipse.rse.ui 4 0 2011-03-20 14:01:41.686
!MESSAGE RSEF1002


My Eclipse.ini file contains the following:

-startup
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.1.1.R36x_v20101122_1400.jar
--launcher.library
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.win32.win32.x86_1.1.2.R36x_v20101222
-showsplash
org.eclipse.platform
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256m
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
-vm
C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.6.0_24/bin/javaw.exe
-product
org.eclipse.epp.package.php.product
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256M
-vmargs
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.5
-Xms40m
-Xmx384m


I'm really helpless but it is really important to me that I can use Eclipse for my daily work again! Do I miss any prerequisites, .dll files, Environment Variables or anything else?

As already said, it was working fine until some days ago so I have no explaination why it suddenly stopped working. Could it be a problem with my system itself? I have a second machine running XP and Eclipse is working like a charm there.

Also, it doesn't matter which kind of remote system I try to use (whether it's FTP or SSH) and what OS the remote system has (Windows or Linux) - I'm always presented with the same error.

Please help me in fixing this issue.

Thank you so much in advance!

When trying to upload files via drag & drop RSE gives me the following error message:

RSEF1002 - Operation failed. File system input or output error

Message reported from file system: C:\eclipse_workspace\RemoteSystemsTempFiles\LOCALHOST\c\Users\Asus\Desktop\moduleheaders\moduleheaders\banking\banking-questionsandanswers.gif (The system cannot find the specified path)


Seems like Eclipse or Windows Vista doesn't like the file system path. Do I need to install any additional software in order to make the path meaningful to my system?

Thank you!

Hi Eric,

what you describe sounds a lot like there's too many connections in RSE, so the EFS layer can't find the right connection when trying to associate it's internal URI's with a connection to use.

I suggest you switch to the RSE perspective and delete all RSE connections except one that you'd like to use. I suggest keeping an SSH one since that's the most stable (it's the one that wrote Smile

You can further debug this by putting these lines into afile, say rsedebug.txt :

# RSE Debugging
org.eclipse.rse.services.ssh/debug = true
org.eclipse.rse.connectorservice.ssh/debug = true
org.eclipse.rse.services/debug = true


The launch your patckage with

eclipse -debug rsedebug.txt


Hope it helps!

Best,
Martin

Hi Martin,

thank you for suggestion! I really appreciate it!

Unfortunately, even after following your instructions and deleting all my connections except for one, the problem still persists.

I can't even open local files! The error message I get is the following (when trying to open an example file, e.g. install.log):

RSEF1002 - Operation failed. File system input or output error

Message reported from file system: C:\eclipse workspace\RemoteSystemsTempFiles\LOCALHOST\c\Users\Asus\install.log (The system cannot find the specified path)


I really believe that this is a problem with my system missing some prerequisites. Unfortunately, I still dont know how to proceed now. It is really important to me to get Eclipse up and running again as I'm using it for my daily work. I would even spend money for a working Eclipse installation in the meanwhile!

Best,
Eric

Looks like your RemoteSystemsTempFiles folder / project is somehow broken, maybe closed or not writable.

Starting a new Workspace from scratch should resolve this - I'd recommend trying with a fresh empty workspace first, see if you can edit local files / make a connection to remote etc. then consider migrating / re-creating / repairing your old workspace.

Bug https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=172437 seems related. Maybe we can take your incident as a kick-off for work to finally happen on that bug.

Best,
Martin

Hi Martin,

I have found a temporary work-around: creating the folders manually on my local PC solves the problem.

Opening the file example.com/subdir/file.htm directly through RSE doesn't work. After creating the directory + subdirectory manually in my workspace (C:\workspace\RemoteSystemsTempFiles\example.com\subdir), opening + editing works like a charm.

Also, Eclipse isn't able to create multiple directories at once.

After performing the steps above, you can open any files within the "root" + the "subdir" directory. What you cannot do is opening files in deeper subdirectories (e.g. example.com/subdir/subdir2/subdir3/file.htm) right-away.
You will always have to either create the folder structure manually first ( C:\workspace\RemoteSystemsTempFiles\ecample.com\subdir\subdi r2\subdir3) or first go into the subdir2 directory, open a file within it so that the subdir2 folder is created in your workspace and then proceed to subdir3 and open a file again in order to proceed into even deeper subdirectories.

It is a really strange problem but I think it could be a Java problem of not being able to create multiple folders at once despite of correct permissions (even tried "Full Access" for "Everyone" onto the Eclipse directory itself + subfolders and the workspace directory + subfolders!) and disabled UAC.

Is there any temporary work-around for this so that I can work with Eclipse just as usual? Otherwise I will always need to follow the steps described above which can become complicated, especially when working in multiple subdirectories.

Any help is greatly apprecited!

Thank you in advance!

PS: Creating a completely fresh workspace doesn't work either - the problems described above persist.

Hi Eric,

now that the issue is analyzed, could you please file an issue on bugzilla for this:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/enter_bug.cgi?product=Target%2 0Management

What really surprises me is that it used to work until suddenly it stopped working. Maybe you installed some UNIX-a-like tools into your PATH such that the "mkdir" command no longer works like on a standard Vista system? Also, did you try creating your workspace on a different HDD drive, maybe a plugged-in USB key drive just for a test?

Thanks
Martin

Hi Martin,

please excuse my late reply.

Actually, the problem was caused by an error in the Windows file system. A complete re-installation of Windows fixed the error.

Should I still file a new issue?

Also, I'd like to thank you very much for all your help with this issue even though it had nothing to do with Eclipse itself. It was greatly appreciated!

Regards,
Eric

Same problem here (Indigo & Juno on Win7) after updating to java7.

My solution was to reinstall jre6:
java.com/de/download/manual_v6.jsp

and explicit force jre6 as VM in eclipse.ini e.g.
-vm
c:/path/to/java/jre6/bin/javaw.exe


Hope this helps

Yes, I had the same problem, on win7 Eclipse Indigo. I checked the Java versions installed in my PC and I realised that there are version 6 and 7 together. I tried to uninstall the Java 6 version and it fixed.

Hope it helps.

This worked for me. On Windows 7, uninstalled all Java (mix of 7 & 6) from the control panel, then re-installed JDK 6 only. When I opened Eclipse, I then saw the sub directories instead of the error.
