7626 : idea.exe.vmoptions or idea.vmoptions ?

Up to the build before 7626 the properties file that allowed to tune IDEA max memory was idea.exe.vmoptions.

But it seems this has changed in 7626, although the old file seems to still be present (unless i accidentally copied it from the previous install), it's not used anymore, and there's a new file "idea.vmoptions" which is the one that's used

Hello Thibaut,

Up to the build before 7626 the properties file that allowed to tune
IDEA max memory was idea.exe.vmoptions.

But it seems this has changed in 7626, although the old file seems to
still be present (unless i accidentally copied it from the previous
install), it's not used anymore, and there's a new file
"idea.vmoptions" which is the one that's used


No, actually nothing changed in 7626 - this worked the same way for a long
time. If you have both idea.vmoptions and idea.exe.vmoptions, the former
takes precedence. If you have only one of these files, that will be used.

You may have unpacked the jdk15 archive, which contains idea.vmoptions.
