phpstorm crashing on osx

Hello, could anybody point me a direction why is phpstorm crashing?

The crashreport can be found in the attached file. I know i'm using java 1.7 instead of default java 1.6, but i am forced to use it because of other projects.

when i open phpstorm, it opens, it crashes just after opening a project or creating a new empty project.

You should have JDK 6 in your system, but then you can configure IDE to start under JDK 7: https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/entries/23455956-Selecting-the-JDK-version-the-IDE-will-run-under .

I don't have jdk6 since apples doesn't install it anymore by default (they even pushed an update that deletes the default jdk). I already did set phpstorm to use jdk7, that's fine.

The real problem is that phpstorm starts, and then crashes when opening a project.

And i don't want to install jdk6 because that would mess with jdk7 and i would be in a world of butt-hurt ...

Can you check if upgrading to java 8 helps?

You can have multiple JDKs on your system. You should be able to run PHPStorm under JDK 6 and still have JDK 7 as the default for whatever else you're doing that requires that. It's how I personally do it. Not due to crashing issues but because Java 7+ all force the use of the discrete (high-power) GPU. It's sad, but Oracle is working on Java 9 and still hasn't gotten their version of Java to run as smoothly on OS X as the last version Apple put out.
