IDEA crashes with JDK 1.6

Hi All,

I have IDEA 4.5.4 and have been using JDK 1.5.0_13 with no problems.

I have recently tried JDK 1.6.0_03 with odd behavior.

When I try to change the target JDK in the Project Settings dialog, IDEA simply goes away! (i.e. crashes without any error dialogs etc.). This is reproducible.

I'm running on a Dell Precision, XP Pro, 2Gig memory.

I don't have the ability to upgrade to the latest IDEA (yet), so I would like to find out if this is a known problem or if anyone has any suggestions.

Thanks in advance,

Hello Mark,

Is there any hs_err* file in the IntelliJ IDEA bin directory after the crash?
Please attach one if you find one.

Hi Dmitry,
Yes, there is. I just recreated the problem and have attached the error file.
Thanks for looking into this.

there seem to exist several VM bugs related to zip files crashing the vm
here is what i could find

This one is marked as "fixed" although the comments seem to contradict it

And this thread that would suggest there is some strange interactions at work
