Hello zmbs,

Could you please provide the complete idea.log fragment from that start of
IDEA?

I installed with the full windows exe.

How about starting it with "idea.bat" ? Btw, "idea.exe" starts just fine for me on WinXP. I've unpacked the ZIP (http://download.jetbrains.com/idea/idea6708.zip)

Btw, Dmitry do you have any estimations on when Selena will be bundled with JDK 6 ?

Presumably only after JDK 6 is GA on MacOSX.

Sorry for the delay; pain meds kicked in and I took a little nap. after I made the post :)

I made a copy of the 6700 and downloaded the 6708 unzip file, and tried it that way. Still didn't work.

I then started 6700, by accident, shut it down, and tried 6708(installed from the .exe) again, so that I could get a current idea.log. This time, it started just fine. If it happens again, I will make sure to get the idea.log.

This is on a XP machine, regular user account; I normally don't need to go into admin account to install the EAP.

Thanks for the quick follow up.

Had the same problem. No log file was written before idea crashed -

idea.exe - same error in error dialog
idea.bat -Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/intellij/idea/Main

Cleared out system dir and restarted - started fine.

Probably, some of the problems were caused by
SET CLASS_PATH=%IDEA_HOME%\lib\idea.jar
replaced by
SET CLASS_PATH=%IDEA_HOME%\lib\bootstrap.jar
in idea.bat

bootstrap.jar now contains "com.intellij.idea.Main" class.
Since I need to start-up IDEA via bat file in order to launch it on Java 6 - I always keep my private version of it when unpacking a new zip. This time it didn't start with "java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/intellij/idea/Main" and when I diffed two versions of the bat (the one I used to keep all the time and the new one from 6708 build) - I saw the change.

That'll be it, thanks. Always thought that one day they might change idea.bat...

I think it was done to reduce the start-up time: previously com.intellij.idea.Main was located inside 50Mb idea.jar file and now it's only part of the lightweight 90K bootstrap.jar ..
