What is common idea.bat in Windows for EAPers?

Any time i'm downloaded new build, i'm already fix last line to this one:

start /MIN "IntelliJ IDEA (Console)" %JAVA_EXE% %JVM_ARGS% -cp "%CLASS_PATH%" %IDEA_MAIN_CLASS_NAME% %*

Maybe i'm not alone? :)

I don't modify the idea.bat. However, I do have a shortcut in my Quick Launch bar (I've dragged that out of the taskbar and attached it to the side of the screen with large icons, ala Mac OS X) and that just points to the idea.bat with the Run property set to minimized. The console window uses the name of the shortcut for its title.

Ciao,
Gordon

I never felt the need for that, but what about creating a new batch file, like "myidea.bat", somewhere (Desktop, etc.) that just says something like

cd %IDEA-HOME%\bin
start /MIN "IntelliJ IDEA (Console)" idea.bat

?

And I use completely custom _idea.bat with 'java' replaced with 'javaw' :)
So I have no console window at all ;)

I change java.exe to javaw.exe and additionally place:

start ""

in the line in which main class is launched. This allows me not to have additional console window open.

I always add:

-Didea.no.jdk.check=true

to every bat, in addition to changing java.exe to javaw.exe and putting start at the launch line.

The jdk check is annoying. I've been running EAP builds under mustang since january without any real issues. I wish intellij's dialog about the jdk version would allow to continue. instead of just aborting without a suggested workaround.
