PyCharm Pro crashing on OS X (please help)

I'm new to python and PyCharm. I have both CE and Pro running on my machine: OS X 10.10

Community Edition runs just fine, but when I open the Professional Edition it opens, sits in the launcher for a few seconds then closes.

I opened up my console, cleared it and ran PyCharm again. Here's all the output:

6/17/15 6:46:02.294 PM pycharm[13752]: Value of PYCHARM_JDK: (null)

6/17/15 6:46:03.582 PM com.apple.xpc.launchd[1]: (com.jetbrains.pycharm.382864[13752]) Service exited with abnormal code: 6

I looked, and there is no pycharm.vmoptions in ~/Library/Preferences/PyCharm40/

What to do?

(thanks in advance)

So, the problem was simply that you can't run both community and professional edition at the same time. You can have them both on your machine, but can only run one or the other at a moment.

I closed CE, then opened pro and it runs fine. Then I tried to open CE with pro running, and it failed in the same way.

The devil's in the details.
