    I just installed MyEclipse for Spring 10.1 onto my Windows 7 x64 machine. The harddisk is PGP encrypted. I have imported an existing Eclipse project. When I try to create a new class or interface, the operation fails with the following message:

    Creation of element failed.
    Could not write file:

    The file is created with a file size of ‘0’ and NO privileges. The file access rights are ‘000’ when I list it using cygwin “ls -a” command.

    I have attached the Error log and configuration.

    I would appreciate any help.

    Sorry that you are seeing this issue. I am afraid this is an issue with Eclipse which is the base for MyEclipse.

    Can you check with a new project to see if the same issue exists?

    I suggest you cross post to Eclipse forums for better support.

    Probably too late to answer now, but I had a similar problem. It appears that Eclipse has an issue with long paths. Looks like the limit of the path-length is approx. 125 (probably 127 as that is 2^7-1).
    You can move the project higher up in the folder hierarchy or reduce the package name length.

    I hope this helps someone.
    Kind regards.
