When I start the Modeler (v4.00833) as a standalone and go to File on the menu bar, I do not see a menu option for Open. In previous versions of the data modeler (v3.30747), I could open DMD files from the FILE>OPEN menu.
When I execute datamodeler64.exe, The only items on the File menu are:
What happened to Open?
It seems there's something wrong with your installation of Data Modeler.
Are you running on Windows?
Did you unzip it into a new folder?
Did you have any problems when you first started it up?
You could try downloading a fresh version (perhaps the "with jre" version) and seeing if that resolves the problem.
Ok, I've downloaded the x86 version without the jdk. When I tried to start this, it wanted to know where my JDK was. I tried two places (I didn't really know where it was). Neither was correct, so I downloaded another JDK from Oracle. Now the modeler won't ask me where it is, its still trying to use the directory I supplied the last time. Which file needs to be edited to fix this?
That brought the prompt back and the Modeler started after I gave it the path for the jdk.
I'm back to my original problem. My File menu option does not have an entry for OPEN. In fact, it is missing a lot of things v3.x had.
No option to open an existing DMD file.
I'm not using SQL Developer, I'm just running the Modeler alone.
I feel like I'm doing something stupid (wouldn't be the first time).
Earlier versions of the data modeler (v3.x) would have
I have just found this message about a similar problem with Data Modeler 3.0: 30EA2 problem: Menu items not available
I suggest you try deleting or renaming the folder C:\Users\<your user>\AppData\Roaming\Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler\system184.108.40.2063 (and when it asks if you want to migrate settings from a previous version, I suggest you say No).
If this fails to resolve the problem, you could also try renaming its parent folder C:\Users\<your user>\AppData\Roaming\Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler (but this will also affect the settings for any earlier Data Modeler versions you have).
This worked GREAT!! There were several files that needed to be removed, but they were all identified by the version number.
Thank you so much you your assistance. I really appreciate persistent people like you.
