See the topic GCCE for a solution to this issue.
Carbide importer limitations detected during MMP import
When importing SDK examples into Carbide.c++, the IDE might display the following kind of warning. In this case, the specific warning that Carbide.c++ gives in the Problems view is usually “Importer limitation – MMP keyword ignored:LANG”. It is caused by the “LANG SC” line in the .mmp file.
NOTE All keywords are now recognized during the import process in Carbide.c++ v1.2.
"An error has occurred. See error log for more details"
Sometimes Carbide.c++ gives an unknown error (see figure below). See error log from Window > Show View > Other > PDE Runtime > Error Log for more details.
"Workspace in use, choose a different one"
This error also occurs if Carbide.c++ has become a so called zombie process and tried to be launched. In that case, kill Carbide.c++ process (javaw.exe) by using Windows Task Manager and then launch it.
This error is sometimes a consequence of corrupted .metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.ui.workbench/workbench.xml file. Try to remove it when Carbide hangs up on startup. This deletes your (mostly) layout-related settings. Less drastic solution is to clean the editors section inside this file, e.g. with this markup:
<folder appearance="1" expanded="2">
