Setting build path has encountered a problem [message #270711] Fri, 08 May 2009 04:56 Go to next message

I deleted my old java 1.5 SDK and now I'm getting lots of red lines.

So I do project->properties and change the JRE to the new 1.6 directory. So
far so good!

Now I get this error:

Setting build path' has encountered a problem
Could not write file:
C:\....\workspace\PanAndZoom\.classpath

This is odd because I can read it write it with emacs. Why am I getting this
error?

Thanks,
Siegfried

I don't know, but I would first try to Refresh on the project
(right-click on it and choose Refresh or F5). If the file on disk has
been changed by something outside of Eclipse, Eclipse's internal
representation of that file might need refreshing.

If all else fails, you could try deleting the .classpath; assuming you
don't have a complex build path it should be easy to re-create it in
Eclipse via the Properties > Java Build Path dialog.

Hope this helps,
Eric

I know this is an old post but maybe it wil help future users wuith the same problem...
in my case i was using ClearCase and had not checked out the .classpath file yet, which is why eclipse was not able to modify it.
see if who as write privileges to the file, maybe you are logged in with two different users one for eclipse and one when using emacs.
