Does anyone successed in running 5.1.1 with JDK 1.6b79 under XP?

my Idea dies silently right after start and log file ends at

2006-04-07 18:48:37,233 INFO - j.ide.plugins.PluginDescriptor - Cannot find plugin Weblogic resource-bundle: com.intellij.WeblogicBundle
2006-04-07 18:48:37,243 INFO - j.ide.plugins.PluginDescriptor - Cannot find plugin IntentionPowerPack resource-bundle: com.siyeh.IntentionPowerPakBundle
2006-04-07 18:48:37,293 INFO - j.ide.plugins.PluginDescriptor - Cannot find plugin JSHtmlBridge resource-bundle: com.intellij.javascript.JsHTMLBridgeBundle

whereas with bundled JDK 1.5 it continues ...

2006-04-07 18:48:40,248 INFO - ij.vfs.local.win32.FileWatcher - Native file watcher is operational.

So, I suspect FileWatcher incompatibility with the latest Mustang build.


No file watcher incompatibility, I'm running Demetra with b79 with no problem, and file watcher dll is the same.


Ok, the issue has gone now, after I removed all 3-party plugins, started IDEA successfully and then tried to find a misbehaving plugin by binary search. IDEA sometimes succeeded and sometimes failed, depending on plugin batch was used. But when my search was over and, I thought, I found an offender, just as a sanity check I put this plugin back - and viola, everything works now.
Yet another X-File case, but from now on, I will remove all IDEA caches before any upgrades. 8-))
