I am trying to use Eclipse 3.3 (Europa) from Vista x64. Everything seems to work fine except for the Preferences dialog. The General/Key tab is missing most of the GUI the first time I view it and is blank every other time. This means that I couldn’t change any of my keybindings (key bindings).
I tried a million different things to get this to work. Finally I tried a using a beta 3.3-wpf release of eclipse, which does render the preferences correctly! Come to find out so does 3.4-wpf. However, 3.4 without wpf does not render correctly. So, something with the win32 graphics library is broken. Eclipse 3.2 didn’t have any problems, so it’s something that was introduced with version 3.3.
However, when I tried to do an update from the newer versions, I got weird connection errors:
Network connection problems encountered during search.
Unable to access “http://sitename“
Error parsing site stream. [Premature end of file.]
Premature end of file.
But from my original 3.3 version, updates worked find. In this case, a reboot seemed to have fixed something, but I don’t know why.
