3136 ignores the config and system directories settings

Hi there,

The last couple of builds (3126 and 3136) seem to not want to accept IDEA's
installation directory as the place where the config and system directories
should be kept. Instead, they just default to the user directory for placing
them.

I chose the setting when installing (for EAP builds I prefer to have them
in the installation directory, so as not to have to worry about corrupt caches
and such), and the command line seems to have the correct parameters passed
to it (-Didea.system.path="..
system" -Didea.config.path="..
config").
However, those parameters seem to be ignored.

Anybody else seeing this?

Best,
Andrei

Have you tried setting the parameters in the <idea-home>/bin/idea.properties
file?

Hello Vincent,

I hadn't noticed that file, I only knew about the idea.lax configuration
options (where the installer seems to think it has to configure things as
well :-).
Manually updating it solved my problem.

Thx,
Andrei
