XPath View + XSLT-Support plugin problem

Sascha,

When I try to upgrade XPath View + XSLT-Support plugin to v2.0.2-Selena-b02, IDEA shows me this message "Plugin XPathView + XSLT-Support was not installed: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect"

Please fix it. Thanks

I've seen this too. As a workaround I simply uninstalled the old version.
The new one installed fine after that.

This is an IDEA-bug that manifests because the plugin's name differs from its ID
(for historical reasons). This has to be fixed in IDEA itself.

hi sasha

I was wondering for a long time what the underlying problem was, since all my plugins are affected by this bug... :(

I have opened a JIRA issue for this (feel free to vote for it):
http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-11480

What current workaround do you suggest for existing plugins? Make the id be the same as the name? Or the name be the same as the id? Or...?

thanks, etienne

I've already filed IDEA-11473 about this. Sorry, I forgot to post the link :(

Either one could work. The reason for having different values in my case was that the old
plugin repository recognized a plugin by its ID but I decided to give the plugin a better
name (which never really worked because the repository did not pick up the new name). This
might be obsolete with the new one, but I don't feel like doing any experiments with it.

Thanks Sascha. I changed all my plugin.xml files, such that the id value and the name value are always the same per plugin.
