Error or 944 Start

I have told my co-workers how great IDEA is and am trying to demo EAP 944 for them. I downloaded 944 with JRE. After punching in the EAP evaluation license I get an exception at the console: NullpointerException at com.intellij.openapi.ui.DialogWrapper.show

Needless to say something like this is very embarassing when I'm trying to sell my co-workers on IDEA as a possible alternative to our current IDE, JBuilder.

Is there a known workaround for this?

I personally would have used 3.0.5 to 'sell' the product. That's what
JetBrains are doing ;)

Yes, demo tested production versions - even ptoduction versions have
errors. When demoing beta versions, double or triple test to at least know
where the failure points are.

As to the error, known workaround is getting the idea.license file from an
installed idea.system dir and copy it to the new idea.system dir.

Fixed in 945

Hint to fix: copy IDEA license file to IDEA/bin folder.


idea.license file should be inside /bin folder or inside %USER_HOME%/.IntelliJIdea/system/ folder or somewhere in your hard disk. Try to find it by some file searcher. And copy it to the ]]>/bin folder
