So I was trying out JavaFX and it said my current 1.7 isn't good enough, so I went to do the 7 Update 3. After installing it 2x(First time didn't even install) netbeans deleted all of my projects and I cannot get them back.. I tried to reinstall netbeans and the JDK bundle, but all my projects are still gone....

My code is still there(Thankfully..) but I can only open individual files, and when I open my gui form, all my gui stuff is gone... This is NOT cool, what the heck Netbeans? I'm seriously abut to switch IDE's just because I'm tired of Netbeans BS.

Anyway I can get my projects back? Idk if a system restore would do anything.


Any help wold be appreciate, thanks

Edit: Wow what a #%^%#^#$^%@$@# joke..... I had to re-activate all the plugins for Netbeans and it's working now... Seriously a joke...





If anyone ever has to update their JDK make sure your plugins are all set. Had this issue last night, finally just resolved it now... Soo upsetting.... Good thing I had backups!

NetBeans is a little picky about having the JDK replaced - when NetBeans installs it determines your JDK's location and places that location into a config file. If you then install a newer version of the JDK and remove the old version, all $%@# breaks loose. I usually edit the config file (<netbeans-install-dir>/etc/netbeans.conf) to point to the new JDK.

Thought the whole problem you had with projects has me puzzled, as long as NetBeans is opening the same workspace, NetBeans should find the projects just fine..

It was very weird... I usually install the bundle, but I just replaced my JDK 7 folder contents with the new stuff, it seems like it worked fine too. When I came back it just had nothing open, and I couldn't even find projects in the file chooser, it was like one of the plugins I enabled recognized projects....(Since everything worked fine after reactivating all the plugins)...

I've never had my plugins mess up like that either....

It's weird because I could still open files and check out my code; however in my gui form it didn't have any pictures, popped up an error for "view only" or "allow editing" / cancel.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
