I recently made some updates to my NetBeans development environment and encountered this weird error:
d:\dev\myproject\nbproject\build-impl.xml:485: The libs.CopyLibs.classpath property is not set up.
This property must point to
org-netbeans-modules-java-j2seproject-copylibstask.jar file which is part
of NetBeans IDE installation and is usually located at
Either open the project in the IDE and make sure CopyLibs library
exists or setup the property manually. For example like this:
BUILD FAILED (total time: 0 seconds)
I was able to resolve it by following these steps:
- In NetBeans, select Tools > Options > Miscellaneous > Ant
- In the Properties section, add the following property
Click OK and Build your project again. This error will go away. Hope this helps. Happy coding!
