Component Designer still blank after setting component folder

I get the following error on 5.2.1 when trying to set the component folder in preferences so I can get the component designer working. Any suggestions?

Re: Component Designer still blank after setting component folder

Yes. The folder used by the component designer is not the same as the folder for the user components.
Go to the Preferences:
To setup the directory for the component designer: Go to "Talend Component Designer"
To setup the user component folder: Go to: "Talend->Components"
The difference is: The studio generally loads the components for the palette from the user component folder.
The designer deploys it component into the user component folder.
