    Disabling Kotlin plugin in config/disabled_plugins.txt made me able to start again.

      How to edit config/disabled_plugins.txt?

      • jerome pernel says:

        The file is in your IntelliJ config directory. The default location for this file is configured like this in the file of the bin directory of your intelliJ installation.

    I have encounter this problem, how edit the disabled_plugins.txt file, to disabling Kotlin plugin. Can provide an example let me refer you?

    • jerome pernel says:

      Just add the “org.jetbrains.kotlin” line to disabled_plugins.txt file located into your intelliJ config directory (${user.home}/.IntelliJIdea/config) and restart IntelliJ.

    I too had problems launching after the update but the classic “reboot computer” solved it.

    I have same error on Mac when I updated PhpStorm from 9.02 to 9.0.3.
    Reinstallation solved the problem 😐
