  • Trying to uninstall STS 2.3.0 on Windows - a file is locked...

    Hi guys:

    I am trying to uninstall STS 2.3.0 on Windows. I am just deleting the directory structure. Is this right?

    A file seems to be locked. Getting an error message:

    "Error Deleting File or Folder:
    Cannot delete org.springframework.osgi.extensions.annotations_1. 1.2: Access is denied."

    This is the file:

    C:\_home\apps\core-spring-3.0.0.RELEASE\sts-2.3.0.RELEASE\plugins\org.springframework.ide.ecli pse.osgi.targetdefinition_2.3.0.200912170948-RELEASE\release\target\plugins\springdm.source_1.1 .2.B\src\org.springframework.osgi.extensions.annot ations_1.1.2.B\src.zip

    Thanks
    Leonid

    Could it be that the path to the file is way too long?

    Could it be that the path to the file is way too long?

    Should it be taken into consideration for the next release?

    I have dragged a portion of the directory structure to the Desktop and deleted the file from there.

    Thanks
    Leonid

      This has indeed been addressed in STS 2.3.1. The target definition file that was causing the problem you were encountering is now packaged in a jar file:

      STS-780: Filenames are too long
