how to install Visual Editor (VE) ?

I have downloaded EMF , GEF and VE runtime. I should copy all files in plug-in folder into %Eclipse-3.0-install-directory%/plug-in ?

I read one book, it said , all files should be copied into %Eclipse-3.0-install-directory%.

Anyway, now my VE doesn't work good. I can't see the component properties window.

Thanks

Yes you have to unzip them to plugin dir of eclipse installation (not under eclipse dir directly)
if your VEP doesn't work as expected, I guess :
1. uncompatibile versions of VEP, GEF, EMF
2. maybe you have to activate them (I am using VE, I don't need to activate it)
hope this help.

I don't know really !!
I have never need to activate a plugin in eclipse !
but I heared that some plugin need to be activated.
I have VEP, I don't need to activate it, just make sure that you have the correct versions of VE, EMF, GEF
I hope that I can help you more but I am not an eclipse user.

I have recently tried to install the Visual Editor plugin into Eclipse 3.0.1 and could not get it to work. I suspect that Eclipse 3.0.1 was not compatible because the feature.xml file under eclipse/features/org.eclipse.ve_1.0.1 stated the following:
<requires>
<import feature="org.eclipse.jdt" version="3.0.0" match="compatible"/>
<import feature="org.eclipse.emf" version="2.0.1" match="compatible"/>
<import feature="org.eclipse.gef" version="3.0.0" match="compatible"/>
</requires>

This makes me think that the VE 1.0.1 plugin is not compatible with Eclipse 3.0.1. I'm new to Eclipse so if anyone can verify this, I would appreciate it.

Thanks.

Okay, I guess I cannot put XML in these messages. The text in features.xml
in eclipse/features/org.eclipse.ve_1.0.1 states the following:

requires
import feature="org.eclipse.jdt" version="3.0.0" match="compatible"
import feature="org.eclipse.emf" version="2.0.1" match="compatible"
import feature="org.eclipse.gef" version="3.0.0" match="compatible"
requires

I finally got VE to work. I was missing the EMF and GEF plugins. Even though I could only load EMF-SDO version 2.0.1, VE does now work with Eclipse 3.0.1. I also had to run "eclipse -clean" per the instructions in the VE FAQ.

Thanks,

Cindy Taylor
