Please put "starting intellij in different configuration " into help file as topic...

Intellij is getting memory-hungry and no longer able to run smoothly with 128 mb ram in a day ... after using 5.1 in 1 hour, everything slow and intellij has to keep it up with my typing ... the delay is around 3 secs or longer ...and gosh, i running with 2.2 ghz Pentium. I guess it must be something to do with settings....

like configuring certain file with memory settings... but it has changed from version to version... now 5.1 doesn't have intellij.exe.vmsoptions (some kind of idea.exe.vmoptions file) but now it disappear in 5.1 ...

now I wonder how the heck can I configure the memory in startup ???

It would be wise for intellij to have a formal topic to tell user how to configure memory to start intellij to run smoothly since the default memory settings no longer is optimized ...

I have purchased intellij and really frustrated everything run slowly over time and yet have not figure how to configure memory properly ....

Intellij.... please don't make the user guess.... we have much headaches getting our project with deadline to meet .... and intellij just add to the headaches ....

Please listen to the user request otherwise sooner or later it may end up like Jbuilder which lost touch of customer's need...

thank

Hello matthewarena,

idea.exe.vmoptions file should be there in bin folder. If it is missing something
wrong probably happened during installation. Anyway, idea.exe.vmoptions file
from 5.0.2 installation would work also.
