Is there any way to repair the bundled JDK ?




after a system crash the bundled JDK seems to be broken. Idea does not start with it and when I manually run "java.exe" from:

"C:\Program Files\JetBrains\IntelliJ IDEA 2021.2.3\jbr\bin" I get following error:

C:\Program Files\JetBrains\IntelliJ IDEA 2021.2.3\jbr\bin>java
Error occurred during initialization of VM
java/lang/NoClassDefFoundError: java/lang/Object


I reconfigured the IDE to run with another JDK and it is OK. 

Is there a way to repair the bundled JDK without re-installing the whole IDE?

Thanks! This worked although I hit another problem, which is unrelated to this post. I'll open another one.
