Description schwarcz 2005-01-15 22:18:20 UTC
I've got an NB 4.0 project on my Win XP Pro JDK
5.0 desktop and would like to edit it (sources,
ant script, and some resources) on another Win XP
Pro JDK 5.0 machine on the LAN (my laptop).  Can
anybody suggest the correct way to do this?

On the laptop if I try to open the existing
project on the shared network drive (e.g.
\\Carl2\d) the NB file dialog show no contents (no
directories or file) on the drive.  I suspect this
is a limitation of J2SE 5.0.

If I map the project parent directory (containing

repainted.  The only way to proceed is to kill the

Re. resolving references to source directories: if the source
directories were using relative paths to begin with, there would be no
need to do so, but this will be necessary in case you were using
external source directories, as the paths might be different on the
new machine.

Re. hang: never heard of such a hang, but if you can reproduce, please
reopen and attach (1) your messages.log file for background
information, (2) a thread dump of the hung IDE, obtainable using
nb.exe (not netbeans.exe) and pressing Ctrl-Break in the console
window and then copy-pasting into a text file. If we can see the
thread dump, we might be able to fix the problem and/or suggest a
