It works for me just removing the "file:/", with/out the ".dmd" extension.
Try filling out the Default Design and Save Directories under Preferences - Data Modeler.
I pointed the Default Designs Directory to a directory on my PC (C:\David's stuff) but when I press 'OK' the window does not close. I tried different directory names - C:\With space's, C:\Without_spaces, and C:\Withsmal. It doesn't matter which I use the window will not close.
When I use the same name in each of the five slots, press 'OK', then 'Cancel', and reopen the Preferences window all but Default System Types Directory contain the value I supplied. Is this other directory something special?
Once I do have data in any of the slots, the window will not close when 'OK' is pressed.
I closed and reopened SQL Developer and the four previously populated Directory slots are empty again.
I have tried this with MyEclipse running and not running without any difference in behaviour. The only other software I am running is MS Word, Firefox, and Citrix.
Any ideas will be gratefully received. I will be trying the software on my personal laptop this weekend and see what differences I find then.
I'd say either a permissions issue or a bad install.
What's your OS version? Can you try running as Administrator?
I'm running MS XP Version 5.1 (Build 2600.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301_1519 Service Pack 2). I appear to have all the privileges necessary.
Where can I set the Java version so that SQL Developer is using the java which I already had on my PC?
Okay. I downloaded Java 18.104.22.168 and installed it. I then renamed the sqldeveloper 'jdk' directory to something else. I pointed SQL Developer to the new Java directory and started SQL Developer.
I can now save a Data Modeler diagram but can not set the default directories.
I can not get 'off' the Preferences > Data Modeler page unless I press 'Cancel'.
I am getting SEVERE error on the 'Logging Page' Seq:48 Elapsed:0 Source:o.ide.IdeCore Message:Exception firing mainWindowOpened to oracle.dbtools.crest.fcp.DataModelerAddin$1@1614932 (the last number changes each time I statrt SQL Developer.
To use a different JDK add or modify SetJavaHome in <sqldeveloper>\sqldeveloper\bin\sqldeveloper.conf
I have solved most of this problem by leaving Subversion 'active'. I have tested this and found that if Subversion is 'off', I get the error and can not work with the Data Modeler. If Subversion is 'on', I do not get the error and can work with the Data Modeler. This means that I can open a previously created 'dmd' file and I can also set the default locations for the Data Modeler.
Thanks a million for that hint with Subversion!
I had the exact same issue (using Windows XP with SQLDeveloper 3.0.04) and was nearly getting mad.
re-activating Subversion did the trick and it works fine now. Would never have thought of that...
