Activate .xsapp: Unsupported encoding Cp1252, only UTF-8 encoding is supported


I'm new to HANA/XS. I'm trying to create a test Hana application. I have eclipse luna 4.4.1 installed. I have installed Hana plugin from (screen shot below):

I have connected to a HANA system, created repository, packages etc. Basically all the necessary things to create a test HANA XS project.

But, when I create .xsapp and .xsaccess I get the following error whenever I try to activate those files:

Unsupported encoding Cp1252, only UTF-8 encoding is supported

Am I missing something? I tried finding similar error in the forum, but I was not successful. Kindly try to help me.

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Lohit,

I had the same problem. Change the default encoding in Eclipse to UTF-8 (window -> prefecences -> general -> workspace) and then delete the project from Eclipse. Then check it back out from the HANA repository. This worked for me.
