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 hang
not 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?
