Update Broke My IntelliJIDEA


As the title says, am a student primarily using Intellij with the Jetbrains Academy to solve the project challenges. Lately, though, the IDE was not connecting to the site and so I updated it, and now it doesn't even startup, it shows the welcome banner only then crashes. Tried reinstalling it to no avail. Is anyone else facing this problem or its unique to me? www.myccpay.com


Try following the steps from this troubleshooting guide. It will have you delete various default IDE directories in order to restore program integrity.

If it doesn't help, try to start the IDE from the command line:

  • navigate to the /bin directory
  • launch idea.bat, and examine the output for any errors.
