2018.2.5 crashes on startup more than 50% of the time.

Answered

I launch from Toolbox and easily more than 50% of the time when 2018.2.5 is loading projects it will want to close due to error but there's nothing in idea.log indicating why.

Using Windows 7

Please provide java_error_in*.log files from the user's home directory.

If you don't see them, add -XX:ErrorFile=C:/temp/java_error_%p.log into .vmoptions (https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/articles/206544869). Make sure the specified folder has write permissions. Attach the log files after the crash.

Well I did this and I believe I'm using the correct vmoptions file but it's not leaving any files in the path that I setup which is essentially the path you suggested.

 

ie. clicked on "Edit" Java Virtual Machine options etc.

Could you please provide idea.log? Does the problem reproduce when you start IDEA not from Toolbox?
