jEdit hangs on Win7 32bit
Submitted by Dominicus on Tuesday, 17 April, 2012 - 05:37
I updated jEdit from 4.4.2 to 4.5.1 on Win 7 32-bit PC, and now my environment is toast.
Upon opening, gave me an I/O error related to "Sidekick". I uninstalled 4.5, and installed 4.4.2 back.
No luck.
I can open a file with code and move the cursor around, but as soon as I update anything (i.e. add or delete a single character), jEdit hangs.
I have to kill the process from Task Manager.
Tried uninstalling either of the two version and now both installations behave exactly same...hung after first interaction.
After uninstalling a version, I reboot to install another, and the install wizard tells me it needs to close an existing version of jEdit that's running...how can this be, after I've uninstalled and rebooted?
I suspect there's a component or accessory to jEdit that both corrupted and persists even after uninstall.
any clue how I can fix my environment to successfully reinstall and start from scratch?

Hi,

1. Check if there really jEdit is running (in background) after system reboot: Is there a javaw.exe process in task manager?

If not:
2. Rename the current jEdit settings directory to be sure that there are no personal settings can have an effect to jEdit...
(usual %USERPROFILE%\.jedit\) an give jedit another try.
