idea64 does not work with jdk-10 on Windows 10

Answered

I have only jdk-10 installed on my machine and installed Intellij IDEA 2018.1. It initially started with the bundled jdk 8, then when I switched it to jdk 10 (crtl-shit-A + Switch Boot JDK) it does not start up anymore. This happened on Windows 10.

In another computer with Windows 8 it worked.

No logs are generated and I also have tried to delete the directory .IdeaIC2018.1 and it still did not help. A new directory was created and I have added idea64.exe.jdk again with the jdk 10 configuration.

Hi. I am not sure IDEA was ever tested to run on JDK10.  We recommend to use bundled jdk to run the IDE, it has some fixes and workarounds which are not included to openJDK. It's possible to use JDK10 as project SDK in IDEA 2018.1.

One issue: jShell requires Java 9 or higher.  Java 9 is not supported by Oracle and no longer available for download.  Java 10 is not supported by IntelliJ.  -> Cannot use jShell with IntelliJ.

JDK 10 is supported as project JDK, as well as JShell, so you can use it in your projects:

Peter was talking about JDK IDE uses itself to run.
