Ok, please add full ide.log file and terminal output, or better
describe the problem. In which phase the ide stops loading etc. Which
JDK? Now closing as invalid. If added more information, please reopen.
Comment 2 Jan Zajicek 2001-09-10 15:45:27 UTC
The ide.log file that you have attached to your reply wasn't complete.
Please try execute the ide from terminal window using following command:

runide.exe -userdir c:\testuserdir

or if this will not work

runide.exe -nosplash -userdir c:\testuserdir

In c:\testuserdir\system you will find the ide.log file. Please attach
it together with the whole terminal output. Thanks in advance.

Comment from the submitter:

THX  :)

With runide.exe -userdir c:\testuserdir it starts.

I added you to this mail the complete testuserdir-folder in a rar-file

The commandline-output is in a textfile.

Comment 4 Jan Zajicek 2001-09-12 09:20:20 UTC
Looks to me like problem when trying to create the userdir while
starting. The userdirectory is stored in the windows registry. You can
update it there or better way is to use the -userdir newuserdir
command line switch. You can create an ide.cfg file in the bin
directory with following content:

-userdir your_user_directory

This should work. The root of your problem isn't clear. To find it we
need the old ide.log file (when you start ide without definning the
new userdir), the new ide.log (with forced userdir looks fine). So I
can gues that there could be some problems with the location of
default userdir - spaces in the path, unreachable destination etc.

Leaving as invalid.
