Eclipse Roku Plugin : How to expose the Deployment Wizard

When I wanted to use the Deployment wizard to deploy a Roku app to my test player, the only way I could conjure up the deployment configuration window was to invoke the BrightScript Silent Deployment button, then click No when it asked if I wanted to overwrite the existing zip.

First, open a context menu on the project root directory and select Export…Screen Shot 2015-07-14 at 3.15.05 PM

    1. Roku is a challenge, to put it kindly. This plugin required some Eclipse tinkering to get it to work. I’ve been assigned to a Roku app for almost a year now, and I am still trying to find the fun in it. So far it’s just work.

  1. Strange how the April posting from Roku explained how to install Java and Eclipse and the Roku plugin, but then didn’t go any further to explain how to create and install the samples.
