"Invalid project description" when imporing an existing project to the NWDS

Hello,

I am trying to import an existing project to the NWDS and I am getting this error:

"Invalid project description."

Details: "C:/workspace/<project_name> and C:/workspace overlap."

In .project I can't see anything unusual. Any idea?

    Hi,

    Have you tried moving the old existing project to a temporary folder or changing the workspace folder of the new NWDS installation?

    Cheers

    Hi,

    I know that one of the options for import (at least for NWDS CE) is to have it copy all files into the current workspace of the NWDS, regardless of the source folder of the old project.

    If the old project happens to allready be a subfolder of the current workspace I can imagine it would produce an error similar to the one you get (but I've never seen it).

    Which version of NWDS are you using?

    Cheers
