MyEclipse: Configuration Center problem?

Post subject: Configuration Center problem?
Using ME 8.5 on Win 7 32 bit
Don't know if it's just me but whenever I open this screen, I spend ages trying to work out what I'm supposed to do to complete even the simplest task. There are so many windows in the "Dashboard" & "Software" tabs, it's so confusing!
All I want to do is download and install the "Apache IvyIDE" plug-in. In straight Eclipse it's so easy, using this, appears not to be.
I've done "add site", specified update url etc..., which has created a "personal site" & "Ivy" in "My Software"
The only way I've found to specify that I want to install just the "Apache IvyIDE" component is to open up the personal site and add to my profile. This adds "Apache IvyIDE" to "My Software"
fantastic, now what? - I want to install this plugin but it doesn't appear as a "pending change" - I cannot see any obvious way to install it?

Sorry to hear you are facing issues adding Apache Ivy IDE. Please note that this is a third party plugin and MyEclipse does not provide intrinsic support for Apache Ivy IDE. Please confirm if you have followed below steps (based on http://ant.apache.org/ivy/ivyde/download.cgi) -
1. Add update site - http://www.apache.org/dist/ant/ivyde/updatesite
2. Plugin is listed under Personal Sites and you have expanded the plugin till the child node
3. Right click on "Apache IvyDE" and click on [add to Profile].
4. Click on [Apply 1 change] under *Pending Changes* and follow the wizard till completion.
5. When prompted, please choose to restart the IDE. Please see the attached screenshot.
Alternately, you could download the plugins and features and add to [MyEclipse Installation Directory]/dropins. Refer section "Install the latest Ivy bundle" from http://ant.apache.org/ivy/ivyde/download.cgi And restart MyEclipse IDE. On restart MyEclipse would prompt you on the plugins added.
Hope this helps.

thanks for your reply, ok up to step 3 but nothing appears in "Pending Changes" to apply?
going to have a go at "Install the latest Ivy bundle" instead
harryajh - Apr 03, 2012 - 02:48 PM
still not working, tried the following -
"org.apache.ivyde.feature_126.96.36.199008101807-RELEASE.jar" in to "C:\Users\harryajh\AppData\Local\Genuitec\Common\features"
and "org.apache.ivyde.eclipse_188.8.131.52008101807-RELEASE.jar" in to "C:\Users\harryajh\AppData\Local\Genuitec\Common\plugins"
Restarted ME with -clean option - expecting to see "Ivy" in "Window | Preferences" but it's not - unless there's something I've missed or done wrong, I'm going to have to give up on this - wasted too much time on it as it is!
I get this in my eclipse log file but don't think it's anything to do with it -

stuck both jars in dropins folder, -clean again and now get the following on startup - see attachment
harryajh - Apr 04, 2012 - 09:06 AM
pretty much gave up on this now, even trying to update to "ME 8.6.1" & "Pulse Services And Extensions 3.0.3" gives error below, don't believe it's ever going to work in my env
thanks for your help anyway - a bit gutted as only renewed ME lic a couple of days ago!

I could replicate this issue when I downloaded the .zip file and copied the features and plugins to [MyEclipse Installation Directory]/dropins folder.
Here is what I recommend you do -
1. Remove the plugins and features from [MyEclipse Installation Dir]/dropins
2. Download 2.1.0 plugins from http://newverhost.com/pub//ant/ivyde/updatesite/plugins/
3. Download 2.1.0 features from http://newverhost.com/pub//ant/ivyde/updatesite/features/
4. Add the downloaded plugins to [MyEclipse installation dir]/dropins/plugins and features to [MyEclipse installation dir]/dropins/features
5. Restart MyEclipse IDE
Refer attached images. You should be all set.

Sorry to hear you are running into issues with 8.6.1 upgrade and pulse 3.0.3 update. Could you answer below queries -
1. Attach a screenshot of MyEclipse Configuration Center > Software tab to help me get a visual
2. Clear your .log file located at [your workspace dir]/.metadata/.log, replicate the issue and attach file here

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Please see attached, looks identical to what you described, start -clean and nothing, no errors or dialog like in your screenshot.
Really don't have time to contact support for link to 8.6.1 and probably loads more messing around - we've just had our desktops upgraded from win 2000 to 7 and one question was "can we just use Eclipse instead of ME" - the problems I've had so far have probably answered that - looks like we've no choice
I tried upgrading to 8.6.1 a few more times, it seems to get about 3 meg further each time then bombs out - with 300mb left to download, no chance am I doing a 100 more!

I am afraid, you got it wrong.
You have added features to C:\Users\aharrison\...Data\Local\Genuitec\MyEclipse 8.5\dropins\plugins\features and plugins to C:\Users\aharrison\...Data\Local\Genuitec\MyEclipse 8.5\dropins\plugins\plugins
Instead ivy plugins should be added directly to C:\Users\aharrison\...Data\Local\Genuitec\MyEclipse 8.5\dropins\plugins and features to C:\Users\aharrison\...Data\Local\Genuitec\MyEclipse 8.5\dropins\features
See the attached screenshots.
Please note that your subscription key entitles you to download any version of MyEclipse. You could download and install MyEclipse 10 along side ME 8.5. If you could attach screenshot of MyEclipse Configuration Center > Software tab, it would help me get a visual of your profile's current state. The .log file would also help me investigate further.
harryajh - Apr 05, 2012 - 09:47 AM
wohoo, tried it again and it works - gonna stick with 8.5 for now until I'm confident everythings there though
many thanks for your help
