Milestone 1 hangs on startup

Hi

I installed 7.0 M1 yesterday on Windows XP. Have been trying to use it with JDK 1.6.0u1 with mixed success. The issue is on startup IDEA will sometimes hangnot complete the startup process. This just happened again this morning, and idea.log does not show any exceptionsthe last successful log entry in each case (of 3 unsuccessful tries) was

2007-04-13 09:56:58,156 INFO - enapi.vfs.impl.jar.JarFileInfo - Opening zip-file C:\Program Files\JetBrains\IntelliJ IDEA 7.0M1\plugins\tomcat\lib\resources_en.jar...

In each case it didn't proceed further.

This is using IDEA.bat with JDK_HOME defined to point to my 1.6 installation. Using idea.exe launch seems to go OK--just tried twice.

This problem is intermittent--yesterday I was able to work with M1 for several hours, but did have problems after various configure/install plugins/restart attempts. This morning I couldn't get it to start at all with JDK 6.

Anyone seen this so far?
Thanks
Patrick

A jstack thread dump will likely provide information about the cause of the
deadlock.
(On JRE 1.5 you can use http://tmitevski.users.mcs2.netarray.com/stacktrace/app/launch.jnlp)

It could be this bug: http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEADEV-15752
I've often seen this happening with "PluginUpdateNotifier" installed.

Regards,

Thanks! Removing the plugin update notifier plugin allowed me to launch (altho it's a race condition, don't know if it will reappear).

Looks like it is fixed in an upcoming release (I have build 6819, fixed in 6821).

Thanks a lot for pointing this out.

GenerateToString also deadlocks on startup from time to time with similar stacktrace.

This was reported back in 6733... Kind of ludicrous to release a
Milestone build that is prone to deadlocking upon startup really, not a
very good first impression for new users :S

That's quite wierd actually.

Using JDK 1.6.0u1, I can't get IDEA to start with the executable at all. Using the batch file works every time for me.

No problems here for me. I wiped out the JRE directory under Intellij and copied over hte JRE from the JDK 6 Update 1. Change the idea.exe.properties file and boom everything works. No problems at all.

Isn't the plugin notifer plugin a third part plugin thou - and its
always my line of thought that plugins designed for one version of a
project may or may not work for newer releases. Still, not very pretty
thou.

PluginNotifier is not the cause, just a trigger for the deadlock...
other plugins have been seen to make it happen too, including the new
JetConnect one, bundled with the milestone build.

Hangs for me on startup as well. Did not have this problem with pre-M1
builds

Hello Alex,

Just experienced this as well. I run with jdk 6 u1 (using a symlink created
with junction), but I was fine last week with the same setup.

I managed to move ahead by deleting IDEA's system directory, everything worked
well after that.

HTH,
Andrei

I've also had such issues, running jdk6 u1 on ubuntu 7.04.

This should have been fixed in the Milestone 1a build I think...
