Can't run or compile anything from idea

Hay there,

Nice product, but really, I'm not able to run or debug anything at all from the IDE. I'm running the latest build, 833. I have set up my code paths like I did in 3.0.1 version, except that I couldn't compile to multiple output paths anymore. Where did that feature go? My problems might be related to this?

Best regards,

Not available (yet) in the new implementation of project modules. Will come
in time...

My problems might be related to this?


Doesn't seem likely. Unless you haven't recompiled everything to a single
output path and some classes are not found.

Hmmm, in the previous version of idea, the compiling stuff (except generation of RMI stubs) were taken care of by idea itself? I just pressed "run" og "debug", and I saw the compilation of all classes took place inside IDE. I suggest the compiled classes are put to some cache in the idea working directory? Now, when I press "run" or "debug" nothing whatsoever happens! It would be nice to see an error message or something that would tell me what I did wrong?

Check that the "make project before running/debugging" checkbox is on (in
project->run/debug).

Does Build->Rebuild project rebuild the project?

the compiled classes are put to some cache in the idea working

directory?

They are put in the usual place: inside the output dir specified in project
ptoperties. The "class cache" in idea system dir is/was used only for
projects with multiple output paths.

Rebuild all -> idea hangs!

Do the usual:

1. search for errors in idea log / console.
2. post a thread dump taken after idea hangs.

Please try to create the project file with the build 833 from the scratch (do not open ipr files created by IDEA 3.0.x). This should
help.

I'm experiencing the same problem with 833. I trid a lot of varations: conservative and new installations, old and new projects, several SDKs..., and always got the same result: previous installation 3.5 worked fine, but 833 did not copied classes to the project classes directory.

Then a tesed installing 833 in another computer with no previous IDEA installation and it worked normally.

So I cant guess what is happening. The only difference I can say is that the first compueter OS is WXP and the second one W98, but not sure it is relevant

If you already had IDEA installed, Aurora (build 833) may pick the configuration and caches from this installation. It is better to
install Aurora builds in a new directory and not use project files or caches created by IDEA 3.0.x - just use different "system"
directories for IDEA 3.0.x and Aurora.

I also tried it. Some of the tests I made were with Aurora in its default directory -diferent form the one I used to install Idea previous versions- and I started new projects from it. But I never could make my classes be copied to the projects classes directory, even they appeared in a home/.Idea subdirectory.

I guess it is a different kind of problem, subttle and uncommon enough to make difficult to find out what is happening. I used filemon.exe to monitor disk access from Aurora and I got no errors. So I will leave, and keep with the older version for the moment.
