Eclipse Error Creating New Debug Configuration

Post by dextercowley » Wed Jul 23, 2008 10:15 pm

Hi. I'm trying to set up my Windows PC with Eclipse and PHP using the very good instructions here:, ... nners:ide/.

I think my Eclipse version might be slightly different than the version referred to in the article (the link for the Eclipse download there doesn't work). I'm using Ecllipse 3.3.2, which I believe is the latest stable version. The screenshots in the article don't quite match what I have, so I'm guessing that that article is using Eclipse 3.2?

Anyway, I tried to follow the instructions as best as I could, and everything seemed to going peachy until I got to the step where you create the Debug Launch Configuration. When I click on the New_Configuration, I get an Eclipse error "An error has occurred. See error log for more details. org.eclipse.php.internal.core.util.FileUtils.fileExists(Ljava/lang/String;)Z". Here is the first part of the eclipse error log:

I don't really understand this, but it looks like I might be using an "old Debugger Version".

At this point, I am unable to create a Debug Launch Configuration (the OK button is grayed out). So I'm stuck.

Should I be using a different Eclipse version other than 3.3.2? A newer version of XDebug? (I'm using "php_xdebug-2.0.0-5.2.2.dll" per the web page instructions).

Thanks for any help you might provide. Mark
