KB#01071-IDE is not showing BBx, PRO/5 or BBj file icons

Title:

IDE is not showing BBx, PRO/5 or BBj file icons

Description:

Running the IDE does not show the icons for file types associated with BASIS products.

Resolution:

Occasionally this will happen when prior installations of NetBeans exist or existed on the system. 

Under Windows operating systems: 
Check the "-userdir" parameter on the shortcut for the BBj IDE: 

-userdir "C:\Program Files\Basis\ide\defaultuser" 

Correct the -userdir parameter to reflect the correct path for the default user directory created by the BASIS installation of BBj and the IDE. 

Under UNIX operating systems: 
1) Go to the <BBj_Install_Dir>/ide/bin directory. 
2) Open the ide.cfg file in a text editor. 
3) Insert a flag like the following on the last line of the file: 
-userdir <full path to basis install dir>/ide/defaultuser 
4) Save and close the ide.cfg file. 

For example, my -userdir path is /home/user/ide/defaultuser. 
This path points to the user directory containing the BBj plugin modules. When the NetBeans IDE is started, the ide.cfg file is read and the value for -userdir is set to the right user directory. The IDE will then automatically load our plugin modules.
