Hi javydreamercsw
 What's your netbeans version? I tried it in netbeans v6.1 rc2. It's OK.

Comment 3 javydreamercsw 2008-04-29 12:07:52 UTC
I'm on 6.1 final...
Comment 4 Jiri Kovalsky 2008-04-29 13:07:18 UTC
It works fine for me. Are you trying to install manually downloaded NBM file? In such case I don't understand why the
IDE tries to connect to some server. Are you able to reproduce it?
Comment 5 javydreamercsw 2008-04-30 01:17:59 UTC
Yes, it is a manual download. I wonder the same thing...
Comment 6 Jiri Kovalsky 2008-05-02 13:27:24 UTC
Jirko, can you please evaluate this? I really don't get what's going on here... :-( Thanks for your comment!
Comment 7 Jiri Kovalsky 2008-05-02 13:28:07 UTC
This is Plugins Manager related issue.
Comment 8 Jaromir Uhrik 2008-05-02 14:08:08 UTC
On my Win XP machine there is no problem to install this plugin. Could you please provide steps to reproduce and
messages.log. Is it always reproducible?
Comment 9 Jiri Rechtacek 2008-05-02 18:11:12 UTC
At least need to improved message of wrong state to don't blame inet connection in such cases. Steps for reproduction
this problem would be worth. Thanks
Comment 10 javydreamercsw 2008-05-04 19:58:00 UTC
The factor might be that I'm on windows Vista. Basically this are the steps:

1. Download the plug-in
2. Go to plugins>downloaded and add the downloaded plugin.
3. Install

There's where the error pops out.

Same thing just happened with this plugin:

Comment 13 Jeffrey Rubinoff 2008-05-21 16:59:14 UTC
I have had precisely the same problem manually installing downloaded plugins on Vista on NB 6.1 RC 1, RC 2 and Final.
In fact, I am now having this problem installing plugins from the Plugin Center. I cannot install any of the JSF plugins
because of this error.
I have tried manually downloading the .nbm files and installing them from my local file system, but this still produces
the same error.

Happened again with:
Comment 15 Michel Graciano 2008-06-02 19:03:55 UTC
This issue causes that my plugin will not be validated on Plugins validation process. Any stack trace that we can evaluate?
Comment 16 Michel Graciano 2008-07-22 20:30:34 UTC
It should be fixed soon and make possible a fix for 6.1. It makes impossible for some users install plugins from Plugin
It is a P1 because 'doesn't work and no workarround exists'.
Comment 17 Lukas Hasik 2008-07-23 09:42:11 UTC
works for me on Windows XP. Works on Ubuntu.

hmichel, what is your OS?
Comment 18 Jiri Rechtacek 2008-07-23 10:10:15 UTC
We cannot reproduce this problem. We tried WinXP, Ubuntu and Vista Windows. On Vista both as standard user and as user
with administrator permission. On last build of NB6.5 and on NB6.1 FCS as well. All version work for us. Closed as
worksforme and decreased the priority back to P3.
hmichel, javydreamercsw, could you describe your setup of installation? From zip or from installer? Or custom build?
Where is placed NetBeans installation? C:\Program Files or C:\Users or somewhere else? Where is the userdir? We cannot
find&fix a problem until we are not able to reproduce it on any configuration. Thanks
Comment 19 javydreamercsw 2008-07-23 12:20:26 UTC
Windows Vista, default installation.

It hasn't happened to me since 6.1 release and/or 6.5 m1.
Comment 20 Lukas Hasik 2008-07-23 12:52:07 UTC
javydreamercsw, does it mean that it happened once and later you were able to install the plugins successfully?
Or you were able to reproduce it subsequently with 6.1/6.5M1 but you are not able to reproduce it now with latest builds
Comment 21 Michel Graciano 2008-07-23 14:09:22 UTC
javydreamercsw can you test again for the plugins you can't install sometime ago?
For example, my plugin
BTW, I didn't had face this problem, just see some plugin users get it.

Comment 22 Michel Graciano 2008-12-15 19:23:29 UTC
it should be fixed, since it makes some plugins non installable for some users. Any chances to make more details available?
