M2 won't start

I've been using M1b. I just installed M2 on Windows XP and when I try to start it, it displays the splash window but without my name and date. There's no CPU/disk/network activity. It seems to have just frozen. I can still start M1 (after killing the IDEA process). The jconsole findMonitorDeadlockedThreads() returns null.

Has anyone else seen this problem, and how can I trouble-shoot it?

Hello David,

I've been using M1b. I just installed M2 on Windows XP and when I try
to start it, it displays the splash window but without my name and
date. There's no CPU/disk/network activity. It seems to have just
frozen. I can still start M1 (after killing the IDEA process). The
jconsole findMonitorDeadlockedThreads() returns null.

Has anyone else seen this problem, and how can I trouble-shoot it?


Do you have any third-party plugins installed? In particular the SpellCheck
plugin is known to have compatibility issues.

Yes! I do have the SpellCheck plugin, and a few others. I'll try it without them. Thanks.

Moving the SpellCheckPlugin directory out of the plugins directory did the trick. Thanks again!

I am downloading it as I type...is there performance improvements that you can notice right away going from M1b to M2?

I haven't noticed. The big things I've noticed so far are:

  • in the project settings

    • the configuration layout is more intuitive

    • I can define libraries in terms of directories containing jars

  • in the changes tab

    • provides a convenient way to look at CVS change sets (including a branches view, which I've been missing since the CVS file window was removed)

  • the editor warns me when a file has pending updates

The difference between M1 and M2 is HUGE. Even from a build about two weeks ago to M2, the performance difference is HUGE-1. ;)

So far I think it is faster. Very fast startup. I wiped out the cache and it got rebuilt very fast.

out of the plugins directory did the trick.

Any chance the spell checker will be working soon?

Could not start M2 up on MacOS either - removing the SpellCheck plugin fixed it!!


Thanks
