Awesome Hallgrimur ! Thanks a lot. Would be awesome though if EB4 (assuming you guys are already working on it) would give the option of editing the version numbers. right now it's impossible to do so from the eclipse plugin and has to be done manually by editing the manifest with a editor. Any ideeas when the final version of EB plugin for eclipse comes out ? This one is still in the works as it's only available from Adobe Labs.
I've tried your recommended method. The extension installs correctly, everything seems fine, until I open the extension. The whole interface is gone and I am left with a blak slate. Any tips ?
Something is seriously broken. I have the same issue as Sorin. Extension panels are blank. Not just my own - even the Adobe provided CEP 5 extensions available on Github don't load.
Doesn't work. If you try to run it, the following error pops up:
"Launching EasytaskCC2014' has encountered a problem.
An internal error occured during: "Launching EasytaskCC2014"
An internal error occurred during: "Launching EasytaskCC2014".
Additionally,the manifest file fails to validate.
The extension is buildable. A ZXP file is created, but it cannot be installed via the ExtensionManager, giving off the following error:
Error ocurred. Error code is -271. The extension will not be installed.
EDIT: I've also investigated wether there's a difference between the 2 versions of CC in terms of extensions. There are a couple.
Extensions for CC are being installed in %username%\AppData\Roaming\Adobe/CEPServiceManager4\extensions
while the ones for CC 2014 are installed in : C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\CEPServiceManager4\extensions
EDIT2: Apparently the fix provided in your link malformed (odd, i know) the manifest file. I managed to restore it to the old one, changed only the values of the actual products (hosts) and the engine. None of that worked. I still look at a empty panel.
My extension basically relies on the web browser its built on. It doesn't use any type of JSX code at all. All of my business logic is in a JS file, not a JSX, which is why its strange that everything is invisible or is not shown.
What is your target product?
The Manifest will not validate - that's an expected behavior, since you are using an incompatible product to build extensions for CC 2014. You will have to ignore the manifest errors.
Also, the extension installation directory for CC 2014 on Windows is : C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\CEP\extensions (all users) or %username%\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CEP\extensions (user only).
All that support custom panels.
The fact that it writes in 2 places is a problem if you keep both CC and CC2014 apps on the same PC (which is what a lot of people will do at first). Plus, the extension manager is not able (to my knowledge at least) to install ZXP's based on user preference, that means that I'm not asked if I want to install a bundle for my user or all users, which is why this behaviour you describe feels odd & unexpected.
