There is a manual workaround that solves the problem:

I install Doxygen using the disk image n the directory
Applications. The program doxygen is located in

I'm not able to set this path. The directory Doxygen.app
cannot be open using the browser in Preferences/eclox

Well, I don't have any MacOSX computer to perform some testings. Although, I asked a Mac and here is what I understood.

/Applications/Doxygen.app is not the path to doxygen application binary, but the path to the doxygen application package. It is a directory. You have to browse in it to search for the real doxygen binary. You should find it in the Contents/MacOSX sub-directory.

In fact, by "compiler", I mean doxygen.

I think I will add a new entry in the FAQ.

I am unable to set a valid compiler path for eclox. I'm using the latest eclox with Eclipse SDK, Version: 3.1.2, Build id: M20060118-160 running under Mac OS X 10.3.9 (7W98), Kernel Version: Darwin 7.9.0. ( I get the same error on a second machine running OS X 10.4.5).

When I browse for the compiler path under /Preferences and enter /Applications/Doxygen.app, I get this error: "Value must be an existing file". What am I doing wrong? Am I correct in assuming that the "compiler" is Doxygen or do you mean the gcc compiler or ?
