Blank License Agreement

Go to Tools|Plugins|Available Plugins tab, select some plugin (e.g. Visual Mobile Designer) and click on Install button. Plugins installer appears, click next and there should be a License Agreement, but its blank.

Works for me on NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201308222300) on Linux. Is it Mac specific? Thanks
Comment 3 Martin Kanak 2013-08-23 09:09:40 UTC
It seems to be Mac specific, it also works for me on Linux and Windows.
Comment 4 Martin Kanak 2013-08-23 09:29:14 UTC
Hmm, it is weird, now it works for me also on Mac after restart IDE.

I have the same problem. Ubuntu 14.04.1. 64 bit. Netbeans 8.1. Was trying to download the HTML5 and C++ plugins. This is for a Netbeans+JDK installer I downloaded, for which I selected "All" before downloading, but I'm surprised the C++ and HTML packages were not already present in the installer.

I see the same on Windows 7 with Nb 8.2. This is when using my own Update Center. To help possible to find the culprit it was working very first time I get some updates. Than I was deleting my app and reinstalling (wiping userdire) after when it start happening. It has 2 incarnations:  1) Sometimes after the list of Modules are shown and I press "Next" teh download just starts and the License Agreement screen is never shown at all, 2) other times the License Agreement screen pops up but only showing 1 module in the picklist and the text area is always blank
