Error 403 Using Servoy_Updater.jar

Postby doug » Thu Sep 07, 2017 6:11 pm

I upgraded my development environment to the latest version, but the Application Server failed to update.

When I run the servoy_updated.jar I get a 403 error. I thought maybe my firewall was blocking it, however with all security turned off I still get the same error.
I even tried running on a different system and get the same error.

Attached is the full error message I get...

How do I get the new version to download?

I had the same problem and the mentioned servoy_updater.jar solved the problem, but it seems the previous error caused my workspace to stay locked, so Servoy can not open it. I am receiving an error "Workspace cannot be locked" It is in use by another eclipse application.

How can I solve that?

In your workspace there is a hidden directory named .metadata . It contains all the metadata that Eclipse keeps track of (do NOT delete this directory or you loose all your settings).
In this directory you will find another (hidden) file named .lock . Make sure you have no Developer running and then you can just delete this .lock file.

Hope this helps.
