Hello guys / gurus,
Have you tried setting the idea.exe.vmoptions to?
any set above 600m, i.e. 620m, 650m, Idea does not start. Even in earlier versions i.e. version 7 and 8.
I am running Windows XP professional and 4gb ram (since its a 32 bit, 3gb was detected and is operational)
Anyhow, when you run idea with this setting 600m heap with 512m perm size, when you look into the windows task manager, 1.6GB ram was consumed (including any other running program). doesnt even reach 3GB.
There makes you wonder that there are still more than 1GB left of ram, but when you set -Xmx650m or higher, it does not start.
Cheers and thanks for the help!
