Description neilyboy 2009-06-29 10:36:43 UTC
Running NB6.7RC1 on windows XP. 
Fails to start, splash screen appears and gets to "Done loading modules" and main window starts to appear but only shows
title bar. No activity in process monitor/task manager. Clicking close is ignored, process needs killed.

Renaming the profile folder will make it start, ie if i change
.netbeans\6.7rc1 changed to .netbeans\6.7rc1-OLD then it picks up the old profile from .netbeans\6.5 and loads. However
all my setting, modules plugins from 6.7 are lost.

I will attach the messages.log

Comment 3 t_h 2009-06-29 12:11:42 UTC
Can you make a thread dump?
Comment 4 neilyboy 2009-06-29 15:09:32 UTC
Ok, tried both suggestions.
Good news, latest build 200906261401 does not have the problem. On first run it wanted to import settings from
.netbeans\6.5 instead of .netbeans\6.7rc1 so canceled and renamed the old profile directory from .netbeans\6.7rc1 to
The new build picked up this as its profile directory and ran no problem., all of my 

So it looks ok now, although the new build does complain of system slowness.

For interest I will attach the thread dump. 
Also i noticed running the build with the problem just before it hangs it tries to access the floppy drive (i hear it
clunk), maybe a co-incidence...?

Unfortunatly this problem is now occuring with the latest built aswell.

In the latest build I installed the visual JSF and visual JSF runtime, once installed the dialog telling me that install
was complete did not respond.

So i had to Kill the NB process, on startup the latest build is now behaving as i reported the RC1 to be behaving,
freezing on startup.

Without requested information for long time - INVALID. We can't do anything in this case. Reporter, please add requested
information and reopen issue. Thanks in advance.
