hi all,

i recently downloaded the lomboz plugin for the eclipse3.1 and i did the traditional stuff of unzipping to the plugin folder of the eclipse. but its not getting recognized.
i tried to refresh all the plugins by starting it from command prompt with c:\eclpse -clean option also, still its not getting recognized..
i am not able to trace the plugin at help->abouteclipse->plugindetail.
please let me know what is to be done at the earliest...

Thank you

Did you take a look into the zip file? Some plugins need to be unzipped into the eclipse folder, not into the plugins folder...

Welcome to JavaRanch!

We're pleased to have you here with us in the IDEs forum, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name (not just a last initial) separated by a space character.

Before launching the workbench for the first time install plugin in Eclipse-SDK Dir/plugins and launch the workbench.Eclipse loads dynamically so it loads when we first use the plugin.Try removing eclipseSDK and reinstall SDK with new plugin before starting bench
