as said above all EAP releases I tested (namely 98.350 and 98.364) crashed immediately at startup
on my machine. The splash screen was shown and after it disappeared, the application main window
without any GUI control elements (only the 1px outlines of all tool/window-regions) appeared for
some seconds before it crashed.
In the stacktrace message of Mac OS crash dialog something about an invalid argument was said,
so I had a closer look at the Java command line in "Phpstorm-123foo.app/Contents/info.plist" I started
to remove each single argument step by step and tested ... and then I met the argument for the
application profiler ( "-agentlib:yjpagent=disablej2ee,sessionname=webide") and after I removed it
everything worked. No crashes anymore.
It's weird, because in the office I have a similar machine and all EAP 2.0 releases work flawlessly.
However, maybe it has something to do with my machine setup. I'm using an 10.5.5 Hackintosh
with Java 1.6 (64bit) and 1.5 (32/64bit) and only 1.5 64bit works with the EAP releases. The 1.02
release works flawlessly with each version.
Just wanted to share my experience with you.
It gets even weirder ... when I try to open or create a new Project (with existing files or without)
that reside on my local machine, I am forced to select a target folder in my filesystem using
PHPStorms file navigator dialog. Usually it takes a second and all folders are listed but in my
case the activity spinner rotates infinitely but nothing appears. And any attempts to cancel
the dialog are ignored.
A workaround therefore is to create a project before (in my case with PHPStorm 1.02) and then
run the EAP 2.0 release. Not only does it automatically open the last opened project (thus the
one created before), no, ALL following tasks involving the PHPStorm file sleector dialog work
flawlessly. The file dialog is lightning fast and absolutely stable. :D
