Windows XP SP3 crashing JDeveloper

by Eduardo Rodrigues


Today, my Windows XP automatically upgraded to SP3 and, after rebooting, my JDev began to crash during its initialization, generating a JVM core dump in directory <JDEV_HOME>\jdev\bin.

After a quick look into the dump file, I noticed some problem with VFS, so I decided to disable VFS commenting the following line in file <JDEV_HOME>\jdev\bin\jdev.conf:

#AddVMOption -DVFS_ENABLE=true

Then, thank God, JDev came back to life again. So, don't panic.
