cannot set current project

Postby woodsb » Fri Sep 15, 2017 5:48 pm


xtimecomposer has just developed a problem for me. When I try to set the current project I get an error box "Updating project settings has encountered a problem. An internal error occurred during: "Updating project settings".

Clicking on the "details" button for this box reveals: "An internal error occurred during: "Updating project settings". java.lang.NullPointerException"

If I switch to a different workspace I do not have this problem. Switching back to the troublesome workspace, problem still exists.

I deleted the .metadata folder in the workspace and re-imported the projects, but still have the problem.

Did not have this problem earlier today, and don't know what caused it to start happening.

Anyone have any ideas what's going on or how to fix it?

This looks like a problem with the underlying Eclipse environment. In addition to deleting .metadata, try deleting the associated .project files (back them up first if you are not sure how to reconstruct each project from scratch).

Thanks, Andrew. I have the feeling you're on the right track but, consistent with the nature of this problem, I am currently not experiencing it. If it comes up again I will attempt your solution. I may have inadvertently executed it already.
