Hi,

When I try to start IDEA, nothing happens. JDK 1.8.0_131 is installed, and updated in environment variables. 

after I click IDEA, it doesn't even apear in Task Manager in processes tab.

*its the first time IDEA is installed on this computer. never ran it before

any ideas?

If you are using 32-bit system, 32-bit JDK is not bundled with IntelliJ IDEA and you will need to install it manually (only 64-bit JDK is bundled now with the installer).

Probably the easiest way to get it running would be to get the .zip distribution from https://download.jetbrains.com/idea/ideaIU-2017.1.5.win.zip since it includes both 32-bit and 64-bit JVMs. Just unpack and start via `bin\idea.exe` file.

Thank you for your answer

unpack it to a new folder? or where I installed IDEA?

Both ways will work. Even unpacking just the jre folder into the existing installation.

I have a same problem, installing JRE and JDK did not help.

After uninstalling Idea and JRE with JDK I installed current EAP version which works.

But I don't understand why normal version won't work, it even asked during the installation whether to download JRE x86.

Hello,

 

It might be a known issue: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/JRE-590. Fix is included in EAP and will be backported  to 2017.3 update.

See https://www.jetbrains.com/idea/download/previous.html . Use a version with JBR8 runtime since JBR11 has no support for 32-bit systems. On Windows JBR8 installer will suggest to download and use 32-bit runtime.
