Pinned topic Problem with installing Debug Tool Plug-In 10.1 over Eclipse 3.5.2

‏2011-06-09T10:53:15Z |

I have a customer with the following problem:
They have their own Eclipse based GUI environment in house developed currently based on Eclipse 3.5.2.
When they try to install Debug Tool Plug-In 10.1 over Eclipse 3.5.2 they get the following dependency error:

Cannot complete the install because of a conflicting dependency.
Software being installed: IBM_Debug_Tool_Plug_in_for_Eclipse Feature (
Software currently installed: Eclipse SDK 3.5.2.M20100211-1343 (org.eclipse.sdk.ide 3.5.2.M20100211-1343)
Only one of the following can be installed at once:
Debug UI 3.5.1.v20090811_r351 (org.eclipse.debug.ui 3.5.1.v20090811_r351)
Debug UI 3.4.2.v20090110_r342 (org.eclipse.debug.ui 3.4.2.v20090110_r342)
Debug UI 3.5.2.v20091028_r352 (org.eclipse.debug.ui 3.5.2.v20091028_r352)
Debug UI 3.5.0.v20090603 (org.eclipse.debug.ui 3.5.0.v20090603)
Cannot satisfy dependency:
From: IBM_Debug_Tool_Plug_in_for_Eclipse Feature (
To: org.eclipse.debug.ui http://3.4.2.v20090110_r342
Cannot satisfy dependency:

It works OK with CICS Explorer and RDz 8.0 but when they try to install it over their own Eclipse based GUI environment they get dependency errors for Eclipse 3.5.2 and 3.6.1.They say the only version they could make it work is 3.4.2 which is an old version for them.
RDz 8.0. is based on Eclipse 3.6.1 so it is not that the plug-in does not install over 3.6.1 in general.
Does anyone have any similar experience or any idea what the problem could be related to?
Thank you very much in advance...

    The website is probably where you should have downloaded the IBM Debug Tool plugin from. This archive is now called as opposed to the earlier name,

    Follow these steps for any Eclipse levels other than 3.4.x or the latest CICS Explorer which is built on Eclipse 3.6.x:

    1. Open the plug-in archive ( or and extract all files into a folder, say C:\temp\cn0d
    2. Open C:\temp\cn0d\plugins folder
    3. Select all files that start with* and copy them into the dropins folder of your Eclipse installation. Make sure you do not select org.eclipse.* files.
    4. Restart Eclipse

    Let me know if you have any further questions.
