NetBeans5.0 setup or install issue: Missing project catagories.
Posted on 2006-05-31
We have installed NetBeans5.0 on a couple machines and all is fine accept for one Win 2000 workstation. We even use the same downloaded install/setup file. The problem is, after the installation we are missing some of the options when creating or updating projects. For example, the normal catagories under Choose Project we normally have General, Web, Enterprise, NetBeans Plug-in Modules and Samples. With the one we are having issues with we only get General, Web and Samples.
Then normally when we select General we have the following project options, Java Application, Java Class, Library, Java Project with Existing Source and Java Project with Existing Ant Script. With the install in question we just get one option - Java Project with Existing Ant Script.
We have uninstalled and re-installed a couple times and it still does not show all the options. We even used the exact same install file that works fine on other machines and it still does not work.
