All:

I just worked with Larenzo off line.
After a little poking around and trying a couple of things we decided to
download the installer again.
His RDP version is 8.0.3, so we ensured that he downloaded the correct
version, listed as:
| download RDP/RDi 7.5 plug-in
(verified through RDP 8.0)

We went into his existing RDP, Help --> Software Updates -> Manage
Configuration, and disabled the existing plugin configuration.
We ended RDP.
Next, we installed from the newly downloaded .exe, selecting his product as
RDP 8.0.3.
Upon restart with the -clean option, the RSE Extension plugins were
available to use!

...
Larenzo... don't forget to remove that -clean option

Well,
don't throw in the towel yet. I use the extensions on RDP 8.0.3 without
issue.

Maybe next week you and I can take this offline and try a webex to see
what is going on.

No I didn't I had thrown in the towel and assumed that the softlanding
RSE Extensions didn't work with RDP 8 eventhough the download said
RSE_Extension_7.5+.

I didn't think about the -clean option but I just did it and still no
luck but thanks for the advice. Unless I didn't perform the -clean option
correctly. I added -clean to my shortcut target and restarted RDP. I will
give it a few more tries and hopefully the extension will show up. (I
really like those RSE extensions)

"C:\Program Files\IBM\SDP\eclipse.exe" -product
com.ibm.rational.rdpower.product.ide -clean

Thanks again.

Larenzo,

Have you had any more success?

The next thing I can suggest is to start RDP with the -clean option

First off, make sure you downloaded and are installing the RSE

This is listed on softlanding.com as:

Yeah, this is a general problem with RSE plug-in's ... any plug-in
written for WDSC 7.0 and RDi 7.1 are generally incompatible with RDi
7.5 and higher.

Kind of a PITA for those of us who develop plug-in's and have to
support multiple versions of the tooling.
