I've been trying to install Wolfram Workbench 2 for a few days on a Surface Pro 3 i5 256 Mb, Windows 8.1, Mathematica 10.0.1, Java 8, without success, I'm getting a bit desperate. For the Eclipse version I've tried Kepler and Luna.

The strange thing is that it used to work on a similar configuration but with a Surface Pro 2. I've tried also the solution from Rolf Mertig on this site.

Has somebody had this problem and managed to get it running ?

The error I get is

An internal error occurred during: "Launching test.nb (1)".

  • $\begingroup$ Were you using MMA 10.0.1 on your Surface Pro 2? If not I personally wouldn't bother with WB2 for MMA 10.0.x, as they don't seem to play nice together (at least for my purpose/syntax). Might be worth trying with MMA 9.x if you haven't already. $\endgroup$ Commented Dec 23, 2014 at 10:43
  • $\begingroup$ Yes I was, and I'm using mm10's Association/Dataset, so I need mm10. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @faysou you could try contacting support and asking for the Workbench 3.0 beta. This issue should be fixed in WB3.0. $\endgroup$

I don't normally use Workbench, but I am pretty certain you can resolve the issue by just installing v9.

M- 10 on Windows changed a number of things under the hood.

  • $\begingroup$ Hi! Welcome to Mathematica.SE. This seems more appropriate as a comment than an answer, since it does not really answer the question of how to set up WB2 with V10 or whether it is possible. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Any other answer is something I would tell tech support not to suggest. That doesn't preclude them from using v10 afterwards. $\endgroup$
