How to get rid of uiDesigner

The gui designer was built as a plugin, but when I try to remove the directory from <idea-home>/plugins idea will not start.

Is there a way to get rid of it?

hmm, maybe i'm doing something wrong.

I removed the uiDesigner folder from my <idea-home>/plugins and when I start I get the internal error dialog. The console has the following exception. (If I put the directory back, no exception)

I suspect you'll need to move the forms_rt.jar file into your lib directory
(or just leave it where it is and only delete the uiDesigner.jar file). My
guess is that IDEA itself relies on that runtime jar, since JetBrains people
have said in the past that they use the UI designer themselves...

I bet you are correct. IMHO jetbrains should fix this. I should be able to delte anything in the plugins folder and the ide should still work. Let's see what everyone else thinks :)

You are right Vilya,
Indeed, IDEA itself is a client of UIDesigner - so in order to run it requires the runtime: forms_rt.jar. The jar should be in both
UIDesigner's lib directory and IDEA's lib. This will be corrected in the next build.

What are the benefits of removing the GUI designer plugin?

There's no benefit we are aware of. Only the satisfaction from the process
comes to my mind.
