Question regarding Intellij 12 and 64 bit JDK

Hey guys,

This might be a dumb question, but I tried setting the IDEA_JDK env variable to a 64 bit JDK 7 update 10 installation in my windows 7 box. However when it starts up it says something along the lines of I need to point it to a 32 bit JDK or set the EXE4j_something or other env variable. Any ideas?

They made a change with IDEA 12. IDEA_JDK is now used only for 32 bit. For 64 bit you need do define a new env var IDEA_JDK_64 (and point to a 64 bit JDK obviusly) to run the 64 bit version of IDEA when overridding or mannually defining the jDK via an env variable.
