IDEA and Windows x64

Has someone got IDEA working in Windows x64? I understand that the JRE IDEA uses is 32-bit and doesn't work so well in x64, but since there is a Java 1.5RC for x64, maybe someone has a workaround?

I haven't tried this as I don't have a 64 bit windows installation available, but the following steps should work to run IDEA on a diffent jre:

  • Place the 1.5 jre in idea's jre directory.

  • Copy tools.jar from the jdk to idea's jre/lib directory

  • Use the startup parameter -Didea.no.jdk.check=true in the bat file


This way you should be able to run IDEA, but I understand debugging may be a problem.

Doesn't work. I get this error:
Error occurred during initialization of VM
Could not find agent library on the library path or in the local directory: yjpagent

It may work if you remove the "-Xrunyjpagent:port=10100" option from the
bat file.

I get the same thing when I use Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM.
I have to remove the -agentlib:yjpagent to get it to work. does anyone have any idea what the -agentlib:yjpagent does?

It's so you can grab a memory or CPU snapshot of IDEA for sending to JetBrains
(using the YourKit profiler) in case you are encountering performance problems
when using IDEA. Removing that option won't cause you any problems.
