Cannot find VM options file

Hello,

After upgrading to Webstorm 2016.1, Webstorm won't start complaining that: Cannot find VM options file. 

System: Windows 10

Not sure if that's relevant but I copied idea.properties, WebStorm.exe.vmoptions and WebStorm64.exe.vmoptions from C:\Program Files\JetBrains\WebStorm2016.1\bin  to C:\users\username\.WebStorm2016.1 but it didn't help.

 

Please advise.

 

Thank you

Please can you attach WebStorm.exe.vmoptions from bin folder and your idea.log (https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/207241085-Locating-IDE-log-files)? Please also remove idea.properties, WebStorm.exe.vmoptions and WebStorm64.exe.vmoptions from C:\users\username\.WebStorm2016.1

Hello.

Thank you for your response:

WebStorm.exe.vmoptions:

Ok. I don't know what happened - it works now. Thank you. I think it must be something to do with a desktop shortcut pointing to some older version of Webstorm on my computer.

Thank you for figuring it out - this exact same thing happened to me!

I know that this thread is old, but after upgrade to 2017.2 and if you use 64bit starter i.e. phpstorm64.exe and came across this error, just rename the 32bit version of the file and you'll be ready to go (i.e. rename phpstorm.exe.vmoptions to phpstorm64.exe.vmoptions)
