How to downgrade intellij idea from 8.1.3 to 8.1.2

I got into several issues when I unfrotuntately upgraded idea from 8.1.2 to 8.1.3 and idea
is consistenly crashing and I am unable to fix these problems. I need to downgrade
back to 8.1.2. I could not find a link even to download idea 8.1.2 again and setup projects
again. On jetbrains website only provides latest idea downloads links for idea 8.

If you are on Mac, please see . Downgrading IDEA will not help in this case.

Otherwise provide JVM crash dumps from IDEA_HOME\bin (on Windows and Linux).

If you want to try 8.1.2 version again, use the following links:

what is the name of the crash dump file in IDEA_HOME\bin  (in my case C:\Program Files\JetBrains\IntelliJ IDEA 8.1.1\bin) ?

I could not fine a file there that looks like log or dump file.

I have attached idea log file from C:\Documents and Settings\speed\.IntelliJIdea8x\system\log

JVM crash dumps look like hs_err_pidXXXX.log. Where XXXX is the process ID.
Can you clarify what do you mean by "consistenly crashing" then?

Your log contains some weird exceptions which our developers will look at.

At the moment please try to rename the IDEA profile directory (USERPROFILE\.IntelliJIdeaXX\) to start with all the defaults and configure the new project from scratch. Let us know if it fixes the problem.

Regarding the exceptions in the log. You are using Eclipse project format with IDEA and "jar directories" library type together. Such configuration is not supported as Eclipse doesn't support it. IDEA should have given you a warning regarding this. To fix the problem go to the module dependencies settings and remove all jar directories, add individual jar files instead.

If your problem is different, provide more details.
