I have a personal license for Idea. I was trying to show another programmer the virtues of using Idea for ruby development so he downloaded an evaluation copy.
I was pairing with him and we decided to import my settings so he could use my macros, keybindings, etc.. We imported using the default settings.
After the import, Idea relaunched and now every time it comes up we get the message "Your evaluation license expired. Idea will now shutdown" and it does just that. We get no opportunity to try to change the license or interact with Idea, it just shuts down. His evaluation license shouldn't even expire until May 31 according to the startup splash screen.
This whole thing is completely retarded. The popup dialog letting us know it's about to shutdown even has a firefox logo on it for no apparent reason.
The chances of me convincing this guy that Intellij Idea is a good IDE are rapidly waning.
