Developer 7.44 crashing in Yosemite and wont restart

Postby d.pearce1417196993 » Mon Jul 20, 2015 11:46 pm

This has happened twice in the last few weeks on my macbook 12.

Servoy suddenly and for no reason stops responding, then after a force quit it wont restart. I have never seen this before in 10 years of using Servoy.

Tonight I solved the issue by downloading a new version and then replacing the configuration files (all of them) in developer.

I had to reinstall the Subclipse in the new version before moving the config files.

All appears to work fine. I have backed up the whole of the developer config direction in case it happens again.

Annoying though it is, at least i found a way to get things back without reinstalling the whole thing, plugins, attaching to SVN etc.

Anyone else experienced the same issue? Maybe there is one file i need to delete or something instead of the whole folder?

hi David,

Whenever this happens to me, removing the .snap file in the <workspace>/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.resources folder works for me without exception.
Hope it will work in your situation as well.

(Don't ask how I found this 😉)

thats great. I did see something about the metadata somewhere on the internet.

ill try that first next time.

Odd it only has happened on a new machine even though using yosemite on my home mac for over a year.
