Removing plugin unknown error

Hi XDK Team,

Everytime I try to remove any plugin from my project I got this error

Sometimes after two tries I manage to remove one and then it blocks (can't remove any further) and I have to restart Intel XDK.

Just to clarify plugin.xml is there.

Is this a common problem? Is my project corrupted? Should I remove some temp data? If so then please point me which so I won't break things.

Thanks

This is not a common problem, but it does happen. :( Usually it means your plugin directory is corrupted. Simplest fix is to:

  • make a list of your plugins
  • exit the XDK
  • delete the entire plugins directory inside your project
  • restart the XDK

The XDK should detect that they are missing and reinstall them. If it does not, then reinstall them manually from the list you made in step 1.
