CodeLite IDE was OK, but now won't start...

Post by rallysjd » Sat Dec 14, 2013 11:18 pm

I have been using CodeLite 4.6 (or 4.3?) for some time on Win7-32, and until today this was working perfectly. Today I clicked the icon and the CodeLite IDE didn't start. All the dependent DLLs seem to be present. TaskManager shows the Codelight.exe process appears and then disappears within 2-3 seconds.

Since it was v4.6, I uninstalled and installed 5.3. (using the codelite-5.3-mingw4.7.1.exe installed downloaded today). Same problem, even as administrator. From a console window, all the other apps can be started, at least to get cmd line help. Trying to run codelite.exe from the cmd line does not start it, and there's no error message of any kind.

I did shut down the earlier version (yesterday) while retagging was running, but I've done this before with no bad effects. There's no problems with the install drive (G:), and all other apps (including Visual Studio, Eclipse, Skype and others) on my dev system work correctly.

Obviously something has gotten clobbered, but I'm at a loss what at present.

Perhaps someone can offer some suggestions how to chase this down?

Delete your %APPDATA%\CodeLite folder
and codelite will start again

OK, now 5.3 starts up and it all works. Thanks for the fast reply.

I had the same problem with 5.4, and removing that folder (actually I renamed it at first) solved the issue.
Thanks!
