Just spent a couple of days debugging this one as I thought originally it was an issue with Windows7.
If you use the IDE integration then you will get an error message when you try to access vp_uml help from the help menu saying that you need write permissions. The error message is actually misleading as vp_uml is looking for a particular directory. If you get the error message to work around it make a copy of “com.vp.vpuml.eclipseintegration_7.1.0.v20090914” and rename the copy to “com.vp.vpuml.eclipseintegration”
Thanks for your post. I’ve forwarded the issue to our engineers to investigate, if there is any feedback, I’ll come back to you immediately.
