I decided to reinstall the Eclipse IDE this evening as while it was working fine, I was starting to see some issues I attributed to running old versions (it’s been nearly a year since my last IDE install!). Unfortunately, a clean install of Eclipse doesn’t seem to result in a running environment .
I’m running on a Mac and I’ve had no problems in the past. With a clean install (no changes to the running plugins etc) I get the following log…
Stopping the runtime from here results in a “Error terminating” and I need to close java from the Mac activity monitor.
I’ve tried deactivating some plugins relating to the automation as I thought it was related to AppleScript startup which is always the last log entry every time I start, however this doesn’t really help. The startup gets a bit further but ultimately still doesn’t work (although terminating the runtime does work).
I’ve tried clearing the p2 folder and performing a totally clean install into a completely new folder but the result is (annoyingly!) consistent.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated…
