MyEclipse can't run ant build files

I'm using MyEclipse version 7. I can only invoke ant build scripts via Run As if the scripts are named 'build.xml'.

If I look at the build file properties, then for build.xml the type is shown as: "File (Ant Buildfile)".
For other (valid) ant files the file type is shown as: "File (JBoss Tools XML)".

I've had a good look around the variou ant related preferences but can't
find any settings that might be causing this. Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Cheers, Andy W.
