I don't know how to recreate this but it seems to
be happening more frequently.
When I start up the ide it start with "Scanning
Project Classpath" and I get a progress bar that
shows the progress. After it's finished the
dialog box closes then comes up again and this
time it says "Initializing scanning. Please
It closes then reopens continuously even if I
leave it for hours. No more progress bar just
the initializing message.
What seems to fix it is if I delete
the .netbeans\nb4.0beta1 directory
When I first ran netbeans it asked if I wanted to
import settings from 3.6 and I said yes. This
time I selected no. Hopefully that was the
problem but it's annoying to have to delete that
directory whenever this happens.
Probably caused by a partial fix to issue 48611.
what build number you use ???
this is P1 issue so your answer is important, thanks in advance.
Bulid Number is 200408191352
JDk client 1.5.0-beta-b32c on win2k
(Not worth making a new issue but can the about:detail page be made
readonly but selectable so the info above could have been copied and
It happened again when I went to look for the build number. Had to
delete the .netbeans\nb4.0beta1 directory again so transfering
settings from 3.6 or not doesn't seem to make a difference.
I also seem to get that initializing dialog box every so often out of
nowhere though it is fairly infrequent.
BTW, I've been playing with the 4.0 betas and early access releases
for some time. I can't go back to the 3.6 ones because 4.0 is so
much better I hope this gets worked out soon. I even used eclipse
for a while but came back to netbeans. You guys are doing a great
Some confusion here. Tomas' fix of issue #48611 was put into trunk
just recently. I can't see how it could cause a bug in beta 1 which
the user is apparently using.
Oh, now I realize we saw this bug before and fixed it. It was a URL
problem - in some cases the apisupport project returned URL which was
not normalized (the disk letter was lowercased) on Windows which
caused equals on two URLs representing the same file to return false.
As you can see from the duplicate, this was fixed some time ago.

Ok, so what do I have to do to get the fix? Will downloading the
file again from the beta link do it or do I have to get a more
current snapshot, beta, nightly, qbuild? Can I just do an update
from the ide itself?
Just because the problems been fixed doesn't mean it fixes my
Either download a recent Q-build or dev build from:
or wait for NB 4.0 Beta 2 (to be released soon).
You might also want to update your JDK 1.5 version. Build 32c is Beta
