IJ on VMWare (alternatively: how to configure different home directory)

The Home Directory on VMWare Fusion (i.e. running Win on top of OS/X) is a weird path like
\\vmware-host\"shared folders"\MyName

It is not a legal path and can not be enticed into it.  So Intellij, which expects to write config files to my home dir, just blows up .

Any workaround?

Hi Stephen,

IDEA paths are configured at '$IDEA_HOME/bin/idea.properties' ('idea.config.path', 'idea.system.path', 'idea.plugins.path' properties).
