Clearing plug-in cache

The problem.

REALbasic 2007r2 introduced the incremental compiler, but this compiler has a few bugs. It does not recompile code if just the plugins change, so you need to clear the cache when installing new plugins.

Everything in this caches folder can be deleted safety. Applications are advised not to save important data there.

Problems with the cache result often in errors like this one:

Missing method Method count Precompile Missing function Property Constructor Plugin

The typical problem here is that dlyd can't find a specific symbol in the exectuable file because the plugins changed. In that case a plugin function was renamed and Realbasic linked an app which tried to load the old function from a new plugin file.

Fixing on Mac OS X

go to the folder ~/Library/Caches/Realbasic (~/Application Support/REALbasic 2006/ for REALbasic 2006) by clicking through the folders or using the "Go to folder" menu command.

Move all stuff inside this folder to the trash.

Relaunch Realbasic.

Fixing on Windows

go to the folder "/Documents and Settings/username/Application Data/REALbasic" on an english Windows or "/Dokumente/username/Anwendungsdaten/REALbasic" on a German Windows by clicking through the folders

Move all stuff inside this folder to the trash.

Relaunch Realbasic.

Fixing on Linux

You find the REALbasic folder with the caches in your user folder. Delete it and relaunch REALbasic.
