Hi

I recently started to get this error when performing the import projects
setup tasks

"Linked resources are not supported by this application."

I had never seen this before... anyone else experienced this?

thanks in advance
Lorenzo

Lorenzo,

Is Window -> Preferences -> General -> Workspace -> Linked Resources ->
Enable linked resources enabled/checked in this case?

Hi Ed

Actually, it wasn't enabled, and I don't know why :)
I've always used linked resources myself in other workspaces. In this
specific project there were no linked resources anyway...

In any case, I forced this option in the Oomph setup and now everything
works file:

thanks
Lorenzo

I have gotten this at today. Maybe has something to do with neon.1 which was released?

I tested a fresh install and here the option is enabled. I wonder how it became inactive in the other installation.. :/

I get this now every single time I run the setup tasks. Do you think I could install a simple tracer that dumps a stack when this preference changes, so I could find out what is causing it?

If you want this always to be true, why not just record it into your user setup or your project setup?

No, I don't quite accept that 'something' updates a preference in a sneaky way like it's currently happening. I will try to fix this the hard way. Having oomph re-set it to my liking would only cure the symptom.

Me too.
The error message out of the blue looks bogus to me.
Does importing git projects via Oomph require this capability?
Is importing a project already creating a linked resource? (Doc speaks only of linked resources *within* a project - which should not be needed in my case).
... confused ...

Edit: In my case this happened in Mars.2, only Oomph and Egit have been updated to their 201609 versions. Maybe this helps to narrow down the culprit.

Nothing in Oomph is specifically creating linked resources but if the projects being imported contain linked resources then I suppose that importing them would require the workspace to allow that. I don't know what would disable that preference; it always is true for me and I haven't recorded it that way.
