    Default Unexpected error reading repository definitions

    Apologies for the fact that this is (I assume) fairly basic. I'm very new to Pentaho and not overly technical.

    I installed the Enterprise Edition 30 Day trial, and then later realized that I really wanted to install the Community Edition. I uninstalled the EE and then installed CE (both on Windows 7). When I launch CE, I get the following error:

    org.pentaho.di.core.exception.KettleException:
    Unable to read repository with id [PentahoEnterpriseRepositor]. RepositoryMeta is not available.

    I can get past this error and to the "repository Connection" box by clicking "OK", but when I click the "+" button to connect to the repository, the options that I'm seeing do not match the documentation that I have. Could someone suggest a resolution to this? Many thanks.

    Hi,

    Please try delete (or move to a different directory) the ".kettle/repositories.xml", if exist it.
    I think the error disappear.

    I don't know the documentation you are reading.
    However, I think the cause of your problem is coming from the CE.
    Because, CE is not available in EnterpriseRepository.

    Regards,

    Michi
