I'm developing an extension with extension builder 3 for Indesign CC (9.2.1). The application run, but i can't debug it.
I'm Using Eclipse Luna (with eclipse 3.6 doesn't work too) on Windows 7
This is the extension ID in my manifest.xml:
<Extension Id="my.extension.name.extension1" Version="1.0" />
This is my .debug file (i put in my root folder):
"<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Extension Id=""my.extension.name.extension1" />
<Host Name="IDSN" Port="8088" />
I launch the extension in eclipse with "debug as" and opent it in Indesign. Then, with Google Chrome, i go the url: localhost:8088 but it says that the page is not available.
I verified that the port 8088 is open.
In localhost i've installed IIS but it run in the default port.
Here is the CEPHtmlEngine log file:
"2015-01-21 10:30:36 : INFO LogLevel : 1
2015-01-21 10:30:36 : ERROR Error occurs while getting debug port. <unspecified file>(8): expected element name"
I dont know what else do. Can you help me? Thanks
Here are couple suggestions you could try
#1. Change your debug port to something else e.g. 8899
#2. Add this line to your main.js, Though its not mandatory with CEP 4.2 or later
#3. Make sure your .debug file is created using command line tool and ends with newline.
#4. Double sure your .debug file is in root of extension.
Thank you so much!
You save my life (and my work)! The issue was the .debug file. I created it with notepad++ and maybe had no correct end newline.
So, i replace it with a correct one created by terminal and magically it works!
Hope this will help someone else
