Description tonybeckham 2008-10-20 19:03:38 UTC
If there are several projects open and you use the Menubar item "Run|Set Main Project" then selecting a project, the
Run|Run Main Project item is still disabled.

Product Version: NetBeans IDE 6.5 RC1 (Build 20081020152705)
Java: 1.5.0_16; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 1.5.0_16-133
System: Mac OS X version 10.5.5 running on i386; MacRoman; en_US (nb)

-Open several existing projects
-From the Menubar select Run -> Set Main Project -> choose one of your open projects.  Selected Project should now be in
-Got to the Run menuitem and Run Main Project is still disabled.

Unable to reproduce again.  Not sure what had happened.  Closing the projects that I had opened that I was seeing the
issue with, restarting the ide then trying again and everything was working fine.
Comment 2 Peter Lam 2008-10-29 20:10:57 UTC
confirmed. I can't reproduce either with recent builds.
Comment 3 tonybeckham 2008-10-29 22:18:10 UTC
I found a case to reproduce.

1. Remove .netbeans
2. Start IDE
3. Open existing project, it will not be set as main project and run is disabled
4. Use the Run menu item set as main project and select the project, still run main is disabled

Comment 5 Peter Lam 2008-11-04 17:51:00 UTC
verified in build 146 (20081104041628)
