What is the .exe for updating IDEA?

Answered

My anti-virus suddenly blocks IDEA's ability to update. I am unable to figure out the .exe, it uses. I thought you use JAVA_HOME, but no...

That did not help

Use Process Explorer (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/process-explorer) to see the full path to the java.exe used by the updater. Contact your antivirus vendor for further support if whitelisting the executable doesn't work.

Thanks! This utility only shows what you already told me though

I figured it out! So, I'm behind a proxy which is configured via an automatic script in the system OS settings. So, I chose the "No proxy" option in the IDEA because I want to use system proxy settings. But that way it does not work, I had to pick one of the addresses from the script and specify it in the "Manual proxy configuration" (because the "Auto-detect proxy settings" simply does not work). Is that a bug or expected? Why IDEA doesn't respect system settings, that's weird. IDEA-178247
