Webstorm won't launch after downloading Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.6

I downloaded the Mac update and then Webstorm wouldn't open anymore. I deleted it and downloaded the new version but it's just not launching. I move it to Applications and click to open and it just does nothing.

My error file says:

LSOpenURLsWithRole() failed with error -10810 for the file /Applications/WebStorm.app.

Java -version:

java version "1.8.0_161"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_161-b12)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.161-b12, mixed mode)


Can anyone help me get this running again?



Try deleting WebDStoirm along with its caches and preferences

rm -rf “$HOME/Library/Preferences/WebStorm2018.3″
rm -rf “$HOME/Library/Caches/WebStorm2018.3″
rm -rf “$HOME/Library/Application Support/WebStorm2018.3″
rm -rf “$HOME/Library/Logs/WebStorm2018.3″

and then re-install from scratch


2018.3.5 works fine for me, but after upgrading to 2019.1 I can't open any windows anymore.


No, it just opens normally without errors and shows a "Webstorm" menu with no File, Edit, View, etc. There is no way to open a project.


Must be https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/JBR-434; please try a suggested workaround (adding -Dapple.laf.useScreenMenuBar=false to Edit custom vm options...)
