I’ve been using an Oracle database more in my new position … which means I’ve got the Oracle SQL Developer tool installed on my computer. My first upgrade was available yesterday … and it didn’t work. Not like threw an error, but like double click on the executable and nothing happens. It silently exits.
Turns out there’s something in appdata that needs to be cleared. I don’t run multiple versions of SQL Developer, so I could just blow away “%userprofile%\appdata\roaming\SQL Developer” and “%userprofile%\appdata\roaming\sqldeveloper” to clear whatever needs to be cleared. Click the icon and the program finally runs.
