IntelliJ 11 - can't create plugin SDK on Windows

I have two boxes side by side - my Mac laptop [OSX 10.6.8] and my employer supplied PC with WinXP [both in evaluation mode]

The Windows box refuses to create an 'IntelliJ IDEA Plugin SDK'. It does not present the choice in a drop down.

10.5.2 on the same machine behaves as expected. [I even created a second plugin SDK pointing to a Idea 11 community edition build [downloaded and built with Ant]]

Idea 11 on the Mac behaves as expected

Java on the Mac is build 1.6.0_29-b11-402-10M3527

Java on the PC is jdk1.6.0_24

Has anyone else been sucessful with plugin SDK on Windows ?

Hello Dave,

Please make sure the DevKit plugin is enabled in Settings | Plugins.

Well, I can confirm that 'The Problem Existed Between Keyboard and Chair'

Oddly, when I launched the Community edition, the plugin SDK was already enabled - just needed to point it back to itself.

Now on to:

A 'hello world' plugin, and then two fallow open source plugins.

One plugin [Sonar] used Maven for its build enviornment - are Idea plugin resources available in an offical artifact repository? I've just been installing the jar files into my local repository, letting Maven write the basic POM

No, there is no official Maven repository where IntelliJ IDEA jars are published. Installing them into the local repo is the best solution for the time being.
