7744 not starting due to AntSupport problem and a workaround that worked

Just in case someone goes through this.

I was trying to run 7744 in Mac OSX 10.5.2 and Idea was not starting displaying a message that says:

*********
Plugin AntSupport fail to initialize: null

Please remove the plugin and restart Intellij Idea
**********

BTW, 7718 was starting fine.

I deleted my ~/Library/Application Support/IntellijIDEA70 and that solved the problem with some minor pain: I had to reconfigure my plugins but at least I was able to run 7744.


Thanks,
Gustavo.

Same here. In my case I only removed SVNbar_5186.jar from my users Library/Application Support/IntellijIDEA70 folder...

I am going to be several days away from my MBP. Can someone who has this problem attach their idea.log to this bug?
