Problem:

When starting Visual COBOL for Eclipse various plugin / java errors could be seen, indicating corrupted plugin files.

Resolution:

If plugins get corrupted in Eclipse you can start Eclipse with the -clean option. this rebuild/refreshes all the installed plugins.

Sample usage:
-Open a command prompt,
-Navigate to C:\Users\Public\Micro Focus\Visual COBOL 2010\eclipse\,
-Start Eclipse using eclipse -clean
