Pinned topic Installing Perforce eclipse plug-in in RDz 18.104.22.168
I am going to Help>Install new software and putting http://www.perforce.com/downloads/http/p4-eclipse/install/3.8
into the location. I can continue and install successfully but when I try to select the Perforce perspective I get an error. See attached.
I have a suspicion that nothing can be installed in RDz without Installation Manager.

Re: Installing Perforce eclipse plug-in in RDz 22.214.171.12413-03-21T13:58:21ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.There isn't anything that prevents the installation of additional code outside of Installation Manager. I suspect that the Perforce plugin doesn't like something in the RDz eclipse environment. I would check the workspace .log file to see if there is any additional information about why it will not load the perspective.

As was stated in the reply above, there may be more details in the .log file in the workspace directory. If so, you may be able to pass those details along to the creators of the Perforce plugin for assistance.
One thing to keep in mind is that RDz v8.5 is built on Eclipse 3.6.2 (not 3.8). So maybe you could try RDz v9.0 (as it is built on Eclipse 4.2.2), if you can find a compatible Perforce plugin.
