View Full Version : Problem Creating Netbeans Projects

01-11-2011, 11:47 AM

We're trying java for the first time this year, and I'm running into some problems.

I installed the 5 FRC plugins as described in the Getting Started with Java Guide (added path to the Plugins->Settings tab), and I see the FRC button on my toolbar, which supposedly indicates a proper installation. When I create a new project, I see FRC Java as a category, and I can select SimpleRobotTemplateProject, go to the next screen where I name the project and main class, etc.

But after I click "Finish," nothing happens. No errors, nothing is added to the project listing, nothing.

The folders and files are created, so I tried opening the project, but when I select the project folder (which has a regular folder icon, instead of the gear-in-a-box icon), it says <unrecognized project; missing plug-in?> in the Project name field.

Some Googling revealed this recent post, which seems similar, yet different from what I'm experiencing:

All project and samples in the FRC category have this same result.

Am I missing something?

I'm using a fresh install of Netbeans 6.9.1.

That is a new one to me.

What OS are you running on?

What version of the plugins got installed?

I'm on Windows XP x64.

The plug-in version is 2011.3 for all 5 plugins.

I tried on some other OSs and had no problems, so I uninstalled NetBeans and the JDK, then re-installed everything. It solved the problem, but I'm still not sure what caused the problem in the first place.

Maybe another clue: I now seem to have a project type called "Maven" which was not in the list previously.

Anyway - it works.

Thanks for the help,
