This plug-in is not linked to XFeature in any way but it corrupts the Topcased installation thus preventing users to install new features/plug-ins. You need to interrupt the XFeature installation and disable the org.openarchitectureware before you will be able to install XFeature. Go to
Help | Software Updates | Manage Configurationand expand the tree on the left of the
Product Configurationwindow that poped up. Find the org.openarchitectureware entry, right-click it and choose
disable. Repeat steps 3, 6, and 7.
We no more offer the XFeature as a ZIP file.
