I just updated to IntelliJ IDEA version 2170.3.3 (also tried 2017.3.5 but uninstalled it for same problem). When I start the application it launches the "Welcome to IntelliJ IDEA" dialog where you can select among:
Create New Project, Import Project, Open
In each case the next dialog that appears relates to selecting a location for the install. Once this dialog appears the whole application freezes and nothing is shown in terms of directories, etc. Also the Cancel button has no effect. From this point the only way to shut down IntelliJ from Task Manager.
I have install - remove - re-install several times, I made sure all remnants of previous installations where removed (including all registry keys), I have updated Java rte to latest version. Nothing works.
Could someone please help with this issue.
