|[cdt-dev] New Project Wizard missing from drop-down
Hi all, I find that if I install a newer version of Eclipse + CDT + my company's plugins and that install then picks up an existing workspace belonging to an older install, then the New Project wizard that has been added to my company's plugins does not appear in the 'New' dropdown, although it remains available from the 'New Projects' dialog. The immediate cause of this seems to be that the entry '<new_wizard_action id="com.arm.eclipse.cdt.newproject.wizard"/>' is missing from <workspace_root>/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.ui.workbench/workbench.x ml. It seems that other people have encountered similar problems e.g. http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wmbhelp/v6r0m0/index.jsp?topic= /com.ibm.etools.mft.doc/au16662_.htm describes a similar issue in WebSphere. In the two cases I have seen, manually adding this entry fixes the problem in one of them, but not the other. I assume that what is going on is that Eclipse should be updating the workbench.xml file on startup, but for some reason is not adding the entry for our wizard. Can anyone tell me why the update is not happening, or how to force Eclipse to perform it? I've tried command line options such as -refresh and -initialize, but these do not appear to fix my problem. Any pointers to docs on workbench.xml or how Eclipse updates metadata would also be helpful.
