I've been trying to update my Eclipse from version 3 to the newest 4 version. I've been trying to do this with a CF card, and with a serial cable – so far I haven't succeeded..
The problems are:
-with the CF card I can't get the eclipse to accept the cards. The cards mentioned in the manual are no longer available, and when I bought the oldest/smallest card I could find (Kingston 4GB) the Eclipse wouldn't accept it.
-with the serial cable; my PC (Sony Vaio) doesn't have a serial port, so I bought a USB->Serial adapter and a serial cable. When I try to run the update, a following message appears on my PC screen: "the serial port is faulty or used by another application" (mind you, I might not remember this message correctly word for word)
What do you mean by "configuring the port used by Oupdate"? I have installed drivers for the USB serial adapter and according to the device manager it's working properly. I have a Sony Vaio by the way.
So can you tell me what excatly, what is it that I'm supposed to do?
