Migrating your workspace

Your workspace is automatically upgraded the first time you launch the new IDE. This process is entirely automated and can't be prevented.

Note: If you need to revert to an older version of the IDE, be sure to read the Reverting to an older version of the IDE section.

You might receive an error message during this process with the following text:

Could not restore Workbench layout.
Reason: Problems occurred restoring workbench.

This message is caused by internal changes to many of the perspectives commonly used for C/C++ development. You can safely ignore this error.

To prevent this error from displaying when you load the IDE (and to prevent a similar error when you exit the IDE):
  1. Switch to the IDE workbench, if necessary.
  2. Choose Window > Reset Perspective from the menu.
  3. Switch to each of your open perspectives, and repeat step 2.
Note: This error reappears later if you open a perspective that's currently closed, but that had been used at some point in the older IDE. Use this same process to remove the error message.

Resetting the existing perspectives also gives you full access to all of the new features available in views that were open in those perspectives.

Note the following:

Note: Many project options have changed from the QNX Momentics Development Suite version 6.3.x (and earlier) to QNX Momentics Software Development Platform version 6.4.1. Although the conversion process attempts to maintain configuration options, you should verify your individual project files to make sure any new settings have been initialized to the values you want.
