    Exclamation JDK 7 update 17 broke my Nokia IDE installation on Windows 8 x64

    I had a working installation of the Nokia IDE/SDK 2.0 for Java ME on my Windows 8 64 bit machine, but today, the installation of update 17 of the JDK affected the Nokia IDE somehow, and it is no longer starting. I get no errors, but it never finishes starting. The progress bar advances a little past 50% and then it simply hangs and the IDE never starts.

    I uninstalled the JDK update (just the update) and then the Nokia IDE failed to start with an error message saying that no JDK was present, even when the JDK was still installed and the PATH variable was correctly set.

    I installed the Java update again but it didn't make any difference. Then I tried installing the 32 bit version of the JDK (including the update) and the error about JDK not being present disappeared, but the IDE is again hanging when I try to start it.

    Anyone else experimented this situation with the recent Java update?
    Can someone suggest something I could try or test to debug the problem?

    Any help or comments highly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    -CarlosDL

    Re: JDK 7 update 17 broke my Nokia IDE installation on Windows 8 x64

    I solved it 15 minutes after I created this thread.

    I uninstalled the Nokia SDK and the JDK (with all its updates), and then installed them again, but it didn't help. After that, I uninstalled everything again and removed the Nokia directory that was not removed when uninstalling the Nokia SDK, and then reinstalled the SDK. After that, it started normally.

    Hope this helps someone with similar issues.
