How odd, I've never seen this with any other plugins.

Dan,

That error usually happens, when you try to update a plug-in (not only iSphere) without administrator privileges. Please start your RDi with administrator privileges and try to update iSphere again.

The problem is described in the iSphere help on page "Install Plugin for RDi 8.0+": http://isphere.sourceforge.net/help/

<quote>

"Make sure that you have administrator rights if you installed RDi into c:\Program Files.
Otherwise you may encounter strange error messages such as 'No repository found containing ...' when attempting to install the iSphere plug-in."

"Some people complained about various dependency errors, which could be solved by deselecting all update sites, leaving only iSphere checked."

</quote>

You may also try to deselect all update sites leaving only iSphere checked.

See also the response of Samuel Hansen for ticket #19: https://sourceforge.net/p/isphere/tickets/19/
As well as ticket #18: https://sourceforge.net/p/isphere/tickets/18/

Both problems could be solved with administrator rights.

Regards,

Thomas.
