RTC SCM - Unexpected % characters in the interface

Hello,


I have the RTC Client version 6.0.5 installed in my machine for using SCM. I can see some weird % characters within tabs the interface.

When I click on Team Artifacts tab, I see:

  • %WorkItems.view.name instead of Work Items
  • %TagCloud.view.name instead of Tag Cloud
Any idea what would be the source of this and how to solve it?

Thanks a lot for your help in advance.

 This is likely the localization missing files. Start RTC with -clean as option (commandline). Or try a new install of RTC, preferably from the zip version.

  Cheers Ralph.


Is there any way to run the clean option from the application itself rather than using the command-line?

Add it to the shortcut in windows.

 Thanks Ralph,


do you mean adding -clean like this: 

"C:\Program Files\IBM\TeamConcert\eclipse.exe" -product com.ibm.team.concert.product -clean

in the target field within the shortcut tab?

.......................\eclipse.exe -clean 

would be sufficient

I'd consider a reinstall anyway.

Thanks Ralph, that has solved the issue.


Could you let me know roughly what do you mean with localization missing files? just for my proper understanding. Cheers

Sorry, missed this. Eclipse and Eclipse based products come with files that have translations of UI data in languages. Typically the name has a suffix .nl.


If they would be missing or corrupted you could see what you see.

 If the -clean fixed the problem, they where not missing, but something happened when Eclipse ran the first time. -clean basically removes all cached data and Eclipse re-initializes.
