Complete Coldfusion Builder install in Eclipse

MacOS Sierra plug-in configuration a qualified success.  However, I have no CFB perspective.
Install log says:
Installation: Successful with errors.
6454 Successes
0 Warnings
2 NonFatalErrors
0 FatalErrors
Non fatal errors being two occurrences of
Modify Text File - Single File:   /Users/barrygbrunning/eclipse/java-oxygen/Eclipse.app/Contents/Eclipse/Eclipse.app/Conten ts/Info.plist
                          Status: ERROR
                          Additional Notes: ERROR - Unable to locate ASCII text file to be manipulated. Deferring...
Indeed there is no such file, whereas there is a file /Users/barrygbrunning/eclipse/java-oxygen/Eclipse.app/Contents/Info.plist.  At the install log errors referenced path /Users/barrygbrunning/eclipse/java-oxygen/Eclipse.app/Contents/Eclipse/ are located folders: configuration, droppins, features, jre, plugins, readme and the eclipse.ini file, but no info.plist.
The implied "Deferring..." action seems to have not happened.  Any suggestions as to what I might do to recover the situation?  What should have happened to an info.plist somewhere? How might I get the CFB perspective to manifest in Eclipse?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Just discovered there's an updated release - Coldfusion Builder 2018.  I will try to install this new release on Monday and advise whether the issue is resolved.

Have now installed Coldfusion Builder 2018 with only one error reported and this relates to the uninstall process.  I now see evidence of CFB2018 in Eclipse, which was not the case with CFB2016.  Will update the question with further details as I use the plugin in case the observations are useful to others.

Thank you to all those who looked at my question.
