Compiling externals on Windows using Eclipse

February 20, 2006 | 9:49 pm

Hi,

I’m currently going through the technical note by f.e. on how to
build externals on Windows using Eclipse. I’ve gotten to the point at
p. 6 where Eclipse try to build the empty C/C++ project, and I get
the proper message in the console, with "Nothing to build for project
My_Proj"

Unfortunately I do not get an Includes folder. Apparently something
bad happened, and I will have to uninstall the CTD plugin and Cygwin
tools, and redo the installation.

My simple and stupid question is: How do I do that?

Thanks,
Trond

Hello Trond,

first, uninstall the CDT plugin :

1. Remove the CDT plugins
* Navigate to the directory where the CDT plugins are
installed (typically eclipse/plugins)
* Remove the following plugins:
o org.eclipse.cdt.*
o com.ibm.debug*
o com.ibm.lpex*
2. Remove the CDT metadata
* Navigate to the workspace/.metadata/.plugins directory
* Remove the following directories (if they exist):
o org.eclipse.cdt.*
o com.ibm.debug*
o com.ibm.lpex*

Then, uninstall Eclipse :

/"Simply delete the "eclipse" directory structure where you unzipped
eclipse. Eclipse does not modify the registry so simply removing the
files will fully uninstall it.
WARNING ! Copy your workspace folder somewhere to keep your work before
erasing !!!"/

The tricky part, uninstalling cygwin :

DON’T FORGET TO CLEAN THE REGISTRY. They say you *may* do it, but, with
experience, i say you *must* do it.

I had your problem a lot of times before. Make sure you’re installing
things in the right order next time.
By the way, i choose not to move to the last updates for now, for both
Eclipse & CDT. Not sure they’re ok together yet…

regards
