Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers
Version: 2019-09 R (4.13.0)
Build id: 20190917-1200
OS: Windows 10, v.10.0, x86_64 / win32
Java version: 1.8.0_201

This version of Eclipse seems not to be supported.
Any plans in the future to do so?

Hi - I first searched the plugin by name in the Eclipse Market Place: no match. I then tried the drag-and-drop approach using the above button: again no joy.

Is that plugin gone or how / from where can I download it? I am using Eclipse 2018-12.

In reply to by Michael Moser

I managed to add the PowerShellEditor to my eclipse installation by adding the h t t p : / / dalexandrov.github.io/PowershellEditor/ as additonal repository for "Install New Software". That allowed me to install the Editor.

I also saw, that there is now a new Powershell perspective, but choosing that seems to be a No-Op, i.e. nothing at all happens (or seems to happen) when choosing that. What should that perspective bring up?

Running a script indeed starts a powershell in a console window, which is nice and what I would have expected. However: how do I stop taht console? There is no command or button (typically a red square button) to stop that shell. Is that feature still missing or not working or what's the status on this?


Tried to use it in Neon (4.6.2). Powershell is listed under Open Perspective but the Powershell perspective does not open unlike EPIC (Perl) or PyDev (Python) for instance. The Powershell option would also be recommended in the New Project wizard.

I installed this plugin, looks nice, but wasnt want I needed.

Now, my F3 is overidden even if I uninstalled the plugin, even if i reset my key bindings, nothing works.... for all my workspaces.

Thanks for your help.

Plugin installed but....

Trying to make it work but failing when trying to "open perspective".
Eclipse thinks it's java code and not helping with code completion, etc...
Unable to execute powershell code :'(

Any already known issue?
This plugin is very interesting but... would someone mind to help me a little please? I'd appreciate it.
