    Default Eclipse SWT Transferring Workspace from PC to MAC


    I am new here, but I have a quick question about Eclipse and SWT. I use Eclipse Indigo with SWT on my Windows PC at work. I am trying to also use that same workspace on my MAC at home (also with Indigo and SWT). However, it looks like the SWT libraries are not transferring to my MAC when I try to open them. I have tried archiving the projects, moving the whole workspace, etc., but I still get the errors.

    My question is...is there a way to include the actual libraries in my project and not just their location, since obviously my MAC will have a different address for those libraries than my Win PC? Or is there something simple I am missing? I spent several hours this week looking for a solution, but haven't found anything that works. That is why I joined this forum, because maybe someone else had the same issue and found a solution.

    Thanks for any help.

    Default Re: Eclipse SWT Transferring Workspace from PC to MAC

    The SWT libraries are platform specific - you will need mac and windows specific libraries for each computer. You might consider creating a common repository for the source code, then setup each workspace separately, linking to the appropriate libraries on each OS.
