I have downloaded Java 7 32 bit and eclipse 32 bit Kepler Release onto windows 7 desktop.

I loaded the Force.com plugin and made a new apex project. Tutorials work fine.

When I open the "Execute Anonymous" view to execute some anonymous code. The "Active Project" dropdown is greyed out. Restarting eclipse does not fix it.

What do I do so I can execute some anonymous apex code in Eclipse?

The Execute Anonymous plugin sometimes gets confused. So just force close the tab and re-open.

  1. Press X next to "Execute Anonymous" view to close it.
  2. Choose Window -> Show view -> Execute Anonymous
  3. The Active Project dropdown is populated with the current project as well as other options are available.

Just needs a swift kick to wake it up.
