Hello All,

I am running:
Product Version: NetBeans IDE 7.0 (Build 201107282000)
Java: 1.6.0_23; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 19.0-b09
System: Windows 7 version 6.1 running on amd64; Cp1252; en_US (nb)
Userdir: C:\Users\aparikh\.netbeans\7.0

When I go to Tools->Plugins, 'Updates', 'Available Plugins', 'Installed' tabs are empty.
When I click the 'Reload Catalog' button, I get the following error message (lower right hand corner red icon):
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/netbeans/updater/XMLUtil

I don't see any solution on the internet.

Please help.

Thanks,
Anand

I suspect a failed installation. I would uninstall it, wipe out the installation directory and settings directory, download again, verify the checksum, and install again.

(The missing class should be in platform\modules\ext\updater.jar in your NetBeans installation)

I have this NB installation for quite some time and I have been updating it.
I have the platform\modules\ext\updater.jar in the NB installation...

Anyway, if I was to uninstall and reinstall, which one is the settings directory?
Is it the Userdir: C:\Users\aparikh\.netbeans\7.0?
Installation dir is C:\Program Files\NetBeans 7.0
My project dirs located under C:\NetBeans will be OK, right?

Thanks,
Anand

The setting are in the userdir.

Your projects should be safe, they will not be deleted.

have this NB installation for quite some time and I have been updating it.

This could explain it. I use Eclipse and NEVER let Eclipse install any updates or patches. I used to and always ended up with an unusable mess. Ever since I stopped doing that life have been wonderful.
