Hello. I'm trying to develop plugin on macos but it is not working. The same plugin working on mine desktop (windows). 

Some details:

<idea-version since-build="192.0"/>

and it leads to this error:

I tried this but not working:


Any hints how to solve it? And for guys from JetBrains xD if necessary i am in same building as you but different floor :)






In the screenshot it's visible that you're running this with a JDK 12. That's not supported, as far as I can tell. Try to reconfigure the JDK attached to your IntelliJ SDK and use JDK 8.


Joachim Ansorg - Hello. Thx for reply. But when i change Project SDK to 1.8 (java version "1.8.0_222") - i'm getting this error message in plugin configuration (run/debug configurations):

"Run Configuarion Error: Wrong SDK type for plugin module ... "



when i keep Project SDK version (from 2. screenshot above), and change JRE in plugin configuration to 1.8 -> i'm getting this error: 


Connected to the target VM, address: '', transport: 'socket'
Error: Could not find or load main class com.intellij.idea.Main
Disconnected from the target VM, address: '', transport: 'socket'

Process finished with exit code 1



Don't change the project SDK, but the "Internal Java Platform" of the IntelliJ SDK, which points to a JDK.

It's displayed here, for example:
