I'm trying to create a portable installation of PyCharm by moving idea.properties to the root of the installation folder of PyCharm.
1. I set PYCHARM_PROPERTIES (according to the comment in idea.properties). I tried different paths (relative, absolute ones, forward and backward slashes) but I always get the following exception:
"java.lang.RuntimeException: Could not find IDEA home path. Please make sure bin/idea.properties is present in the installation directory.
 "Set up PYCHARM_PROPERTIES environment variable to specify custom location of this properties file [...]"
