Installing 32 bit OE10.2A on 64 bit windows 7


Installing 32 bit OE10.2A on 64 bit windows 7

This question is not answered


According to the knowlegde base this should be possible but I have run into difficulties. After downloading and installing 10.2A from the Progress download center (alog with the licenses) I don't seem to be able to create a new project in Eclipse. I get the following error:

"The selected wizard could not be started.
  Plug-in com.openedge.pdt.text was unable to load class com.openedge.pdt.text.wizards.OENewProjectWizard.
  An error occurred while automatically activating bundle com.openedge.pdt.text (25)."

I installed OpenEdge into a folder on my C drive called dlc10 and have set the environment variable DLC to C:\dlc10. Other apsects of the installation such as the appbuilder work OK, it's just Eclipse.

Has anyone else experienced this?



P.S. When trying to patch my install up to 02 I get the following error:

Exiting Install
OpenEdge r10.2A installation corrupted:

   "DLC" registry key not found.

Click OK to exit.

So, it looks like something has not installed correctly.

  • Hi,

    Do you have launch your install with Administrator profil (right clic > Execute as Administrator) ?


  • Hi,

    I tried this but it made no difference.



  • Chances are you're one of the many unfortunate victims of a nasty installer bug that leaves bad registry keys.

    See for more details, and

  • Thanks, I ran the registry fix on the KB and it allowed me to patch the install to 02 but now I get this error when trying to run Eclipse:

    java.lang.RuntimeException: No application id has been found.

    This is my start up command:

  • Hi Beynon,

    Please try re-installing architect's plugins with following steps.

    1. Open Proenv.

    2. Run following commands.

    <DLC>\oeide\integrateArchitect -uninstall <<DLC>\oeide\eclipse

    <DLC>\oeide\integrateArchitect -install <<DLC>\oeide\eclipse

    Also, KB article might help.

    Hope this helps,


  • Hi,

    Unfortunately, I don't have "integrateArchitect" in my oeide folder, perhaps because I'm installing version 10.2A?
