    Menu Manager Files and
    The following eclipse preferences:
     com.ibm.ftt.ui.menumanager

    Click ok to download.
    An error stating, "premature end" to xyz.xml file may pop-up.
    
    When you attempt to use the menu they may not exist.

    you will see that it points to the correct *.xml file.
