installed 4.3.17 and doesn't start up
Submitted by merrill77 on Friday, 31 July, 2009 - 15:47
I've been using jEdit for many years with no problems. I was using 4.3.15, I think, and wanted a plugin that required 4.3.17, so I installed the new version. When it starts, the splash screen gets up to the "run startup scripts" and then stops. I've installed in a new folder with the same result. I don't see any log files in the installation folder - is there anywhere else I can look to find out what is going wrong?

I have XP/sp3, Sun JDK6 default and other Sun JDKs (1.5, etc) installed.

update issue

Every jEdit version uses the same settings directory. 4.3pre17 hangs at startup because of an incompatibility to old settings.

To get jEdit 4.3pre17 running, You should exit jEdit and delete the perspective.xml inside the settings directory (normally C:\Documents and Setings\(USERNAME)\.jedit\). If this wasn't successful, You should delete (or rename) the whole settings directory.
