how to set the system path from .IntelliJIdea to smth. different?

from the community-site:

in /bin/idea.lax, edit the -Didea.system.path...
seems not to work, as there is no idea.lax in bin/ (3.0.4 and build 944)
editing inspection.command.lax instead seems wrong to me.

any hints?

If you launch idea with idea.exe the parameters definitely are in idea.lax.
If you use idea.bat they are inside the bat file.

Both files reside in the idea/bin directory.

What you have/use depends on how you installed idea: ideannn.exe installer
contains idea.exe + idea.lax, idea.zip contains only idea.bat file.

to answer myself:

use the PropertyListEditor from /Developer/bin to edit Info.plist in the Idea.app binary.
