Failed to launch JVM: Error code -4

I worked on my WebStorm today, (last release: 7.0.2). I shutdown my computer one hour ago, and now I can't start my WebStorm.

"Failed to launch JVM: Error code -4"

IntelliJ IDEA and PhpStorm work both.

What can I do? ...

Thanks.

I think I identified the issue.

Three days ago, I got a problem with WebStorm, it said that it doesn't have enough RAM to proccess. So I upgraded the RAM available from 512Mo to 1024Mo.
I didn't restart my computer since.

And now, he get that its properties changed and refuse to start.

To correct it you have to change the file in :
YOUR_FOLDER\WebStorm 7.0.2\bin\WebStorm.exe.vmoptions

Content of my file:
-server
-Xms128m
-Xmx1024m // <= This is probably my issue. Should be 512m even if I don't get why it cannot start cause I've 6Go...
-XX:MaxPermSize=250m
-XX:ReservedCodeCacheSize=64m
-ea
-Dsun.io.useCanonCaches=false
-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true
-XX:+UseCodeCacheFlushing
-XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC
-XX:SoftRefLRUPolicyMSPerMB=50


I uninstalled it before understand what was the problem. But I hope next people will find this topic before.
