IntelliJ doens't start anymore!

Hello,

I'm quite new with IntelliJ. I installed it a while ago and now something strange happened. It doesn't start anymore.
When I lauch IntelliJIDEA (version 4.5) the little startup screen becomes visible. Then it takes a while for disappearing again without any warning,... Nothing happens. It just doens't open.
I already tried reinstalling the software several times in several ways, but nothing helps.

Does anyone know how I can solve this problem. I really would like to use IntelliJ.

Tnx.

1. Try looking atthe log file and see if there's anything strange there:
/system/log/idea.log

2. Upgrade to the latest version: idea 4.5.4.

Try to reset IDEA caches by deleting USER_HOME\.IntelliJIdea\system
directory and plugins by deleting
USER_HOME\.IntelliJIdea\config\plugins .

If the problem remains, please provide
USER_HOME\.IntelliJIdea\system\log\idea.log .

impl.local.LocalFileSystemImpl - Using accelerated file access


Try to delete IDEA_HOME\bin\FileWatcher*.dll files.
Which IDEA build number do you use (try IDEA 4.5.3 build #2253)?

Hi Serge,

Deleting those FileWatcher files didn't change anything.
I installed the latest version IDEA 4.5.4 build #2253

Any other suggestions?

Hold Ctrl key while starting IDEA, the console window whould appear. Then
hit Ctrl+Break in the console several times and provide thread dumps. You
can send your logs to support@jetbrains.com in order not to flood newsgroups.
