Hello everybody,

there is a problem appears when you're trying to add plugins provided with Java ME SDK 8.0 EA to Netbeans 8.0 developer version. Once you're trying to install the whole set of plugins from Netbeans may hang after restart.

To fix that issue please follow the steps below:

- remove directory C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Netbeans

- remove directory C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\NetBeans\Cache

- remove all Netbeans files and unzip new from NetBeans-dev-javame8-4-on-<date> from javame8 [Hudson]

- start NB and

- go to Tools -> Plugins -> Updates -> Select 'IDE Platform' and press the Update button. Only one checkbox should be checked - "IDE Platform", uncheck all other items

- restart NB IDE

- follow the usual way to install ME SDK plugins
