Progress Developer Studio 11.6 (32-bit) crash often [SOLVED]

Posted by Robert Timothy on 26-Sep-2016 22:17

Progress Developer Studio 11.6 (32-bit) crash often in some circumstances,

For example :

1. Switching to other Tab while AVM still loading.

2. Insert .NET Events from OpenEdge Visual Designer.

3. Unknown crash (random)

After its crash, PDSOE won't open / start normally. I usually delete specific file with .bat in order to make it start normally.

cd C:\[WORKSPACE NAME]\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.core.resources\
DEL *.snap*

Just wondering whether anyone had the same problem with PDSOE 11.6, any solution will be helpful.

Thank you,

Robert Timothy

Hi Robert,

In 11.6 PDS OE increased memory settings for 32 and 64 bit versions. Some customers running 32 bit version of PDS OE seems to have problems with this setting. Please decrease -Xmx value in eclipse.ini file and restart PDS OE. Default is 1024m, set this value to 768m or 512m. You can find eclipse.ini file under ${DLC}\oeide\eclipse folder. I think in you case it will be available under C:\OpenEdge116\oeide\eclipse (observed from below screenshot).

After changing these values, restart PDS OE with clean option.

Hope this helps,
Sanjeev.

Hi Sanjeev,

After several tries, PDS OE still crash with -Xmx512m when switching tabs while AVM Loading. But value 768m so far so good, hope this setting can prevent PDS from crashes.

Thanks for your help,

Robert

Robert,
 
For these kinds of issues you really need to open a case with Tech Support.  When you do this please send us the file named “.log” which is located in the <Workspace-Dir>\.metadata subdirectory.

Anne,
 
I will say that same to you that I said to Robert.  You really need to open a support case for this because the causes can differ.
