Build 887 problem

Hi
I just downloaded the 887 release with the JRE for windows , it installed fine, but when i try to run it and after putting in the Evaluation key, it generates
PluginManager error and does't run. Any fixes for this.

thankx

Are you using the Clearcase plugin? If so I had the same sort of
problem and had to remove it.

Shahid,

I've noticed that deleting all preferences caches etc to get something
clean going helps A LOT! It's all in the .IntelliJIDea directory at the
root of your user folder.

hmm... I just did exactly that (deleted my .IntelliJIdea directory) and that actually started this problem!

Whazzup?

I reinstalled a previous version and ensured it worked. Then I redownloaded 887 again and installed it. It seems to be working fine now.

The only difference between the two installations of 887 was: The one that didn't work, fell over after I entered a new eap code. The one that did work didn't need a new eap code because I had entered it when I fell back to the previous version.

Perhaps the problem is in the eap code entry and not the plug-in manager?

I don't get it... I'm completely dead in the water here.

I've tried to remove my ~/.IntelliJIdea directory alltogether and:
a) Start up 887 and try to enter the licence code.
Result: After I enter the licence code, the window disappears and there is no visible progress. Starting up another instance shows an error that only one instance of IDEA can be running at a time so the first one is obviously still running (which is confimed by looking at the process table). The log shows an error complaining about the PluginManager. This seems to be a known error and is fixed in an upcoming build.

b) Start up a previous version of IDEA and enter the licence code.
Result: IDEA starts up normally. But when I try to open up my project, I receive a bunch of errors during the "Optimizing performance" stage. I can see that the Java jars are parsed fine but as soon as it starts parsing the libraries of my project (be it my own library jars or JBoss library jars) the errors start appearing. A quick look at the tracker revealed that this is most likely a bug that has been fixed but there are some things that I just don't understand: I've tried to open my project with builds 887, 876, 873, 859 and 856 and they all have this problem! So I'm absolutely unable to open up a project and have it parse my libraries! Is it really the case that this bug has been lurking in IDEA for so long and I just haven't, for all this time, ever needed to add a project library that had not been "optimized" before or is it that I'm doing something wrong?

I'd really appreciate some response if anybody knows anything about this. Also (and sorry in advance), due to these problems I'd really like to know when to expect the next EAP build... because until I get my hands on that (given that it actually does solve my problems) I'm unable to get any work done! Oh... and just for those who are about to tell me that I shouldn't be using EAP to do my work... well maybe you're right but the situation is a bit more complicated here so I kindly ask that you please refrain from those comments.

Kind regard, Stefan.

Nope, don't know anything about this. Have you also tried dumping the
project files? It seems this is the only thing shared be all the idea
versions.
