Eclipse Network Connection Error during Update

In my previous post, I mentioned a reboot seemed to fix my network connection error when I tried to update.  However, the problem was actually that the path length to Eclipse was too long.  The folder I copied Eclipse to was this, which resulted in broken updates:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Eclipse-3.3-wpf

However, Eclipse Updates started working when I changed to folder name it to this:

C:\Program Files (x86)\E-3.3-wpf

Weird, huh!?

  1. Hi,

    I am facing the same problem and its really really eating my head!!!

    I tried the following

    1.Run as admin user
    2.No my path isnt too long , its something like C:\wtpcomplete\wtp\eclipse\eclipse.exe
    3.I am on eclipse 3.3.0

    What can be wrong!!??? If I had the money to sue microsoft I wd have done that by now!

    The case applies to other software like rapidsvn and tortoiseSvn too. None of the softwares are able to connect !
