[oXygen-user] Can't uninstall/reinstall Eclipse plugin
Wed Oct 27 13:58:11 CDT 2010
Thanks, Adrian. I put the plugin back (via the file system) and got
Oxygen working normally again. Then I tried the uninstall routine that
you described. When I click Unininstall, the Installed Software window
flashes briefly and then closes. Nothing else appears to happen. The
plugin is still there.
I should note that the Installed Software list shows two different
Oxygen plugins (neither of which I can uninstall):
oXygen XML Author 12.0.0.v2010100114 com.oxygenxml.author.feature.group
And this one:
oXygen XML Editor and XSLT Debugger 11.2.0.v2010090711
