    I’ve download it twice now. Both times when I tried to run it I got an “Installer integrity check has failed.”

    The file I got is 186,515,160 bytes and has an MD5 checksum of:

    Indeed, download for ideaIU-11.1.4.exe is broken on some mirrors, here is the correct MD5:
    4a9db529a3cfd253fc16960b0a50526a *ideaIU-11.1.4.exe

    Please use this mirror until it’s fixed:

    We never provide direct links for the zipped release versions, but you can guess them from the other links, just replace .exe with .zip.

    Hello Idea IntelliJ Dev and Support Teams

    I cannot update from the latest IntelliJ 11.1.4 RC no matter what update channel I choose.
    Downloading is not always an option because we have changes in idea.vmoptions (both versions x86, 64).
    Could someone explain the update mechanism?
    I know so far:
    – Major release require download (11.x.x -> 12.0.0),
    – Updating EAP releases through update support require subsequent versions (if you skip one you you have to download and install it)
    – Bug-Fixing non-major GA (meaning changes for 2nd and 3rd version number) versions requires subsequent previous Bug-Fixing non-major GA? In order to update to 11.1.4 we have to have 11.1.3. This is inconvenient because regularly we have installed the latest RC – 11.1.4-RC2 -> 11.1.4. :((((

    Thank you for further explanation

    Ultimate 11.1.3 reports that I have the latest version when trying to update.
    Why is that?

    I have exactly the same issue Victor described : I am running version 11.1.3 and the update check states this is the latest available version. My HTTP proxy is configured as before and I could upgrade automatically plugins and even IntelliJ itself, as far as I remember…

    Problem with broken files available for download should be already fixed.

    Why not provide the .zip version?
    Do you know how many corporate environments don’t allow the download of .exe files

    Come on live in the real world..

    After upgrading, the cursor is invisible. I think its being set as the same color as the “caret row” color.

    I upgraded java on osx at the same time, so it could be one or the other. Anyone seeing this on osx Mountain Lion?
    joe$ java -version
    java version “1.6.0_37”
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_37-b06-434-11M3909)

    You should really add a check to see if the user has the correct privileges to run the updater.

    On a typical Linux installation, the IntelliJ installation files will be owned by root, and the program will be run as a regular user. If you try to run the updater as a regular user, I get a message that there are a lot of conflicts, and I can proceed or cancel.
    Whatever I choose, nothing happens and IntelliJ restarts without having updated.

    This can be solved by just running IntelliJ as root and then running the updater.

    It would be user friendly to add a check for this though, so people don’t lose precious time trying to understand what these ‘conflicts’ are and why the h*** IntelliJ does not want to update…

    Is it very difficult to provide a zip version of a new release ?
    Just curious cause every time you release a new version, I have to get it installed by the admin guys here….corporate security stuff.
