This has happened to me twice so far. I and my entire Dev team all use the STS IDE for our development. We have many different machine type and OS usage, throughout the team, but as far as I know I am the only developer experiencing this problem.
Yesterday, I went to launch STS, and the splash screen comes up as normal, but then disappears. There is no message, STS does not launch and I have no idea why. Every time I try to lauch the IDE it does the same thing and I cannot get it to start. This happened to me over a month ago, but at the time I decided to have my laptop re-imaged instead of trouble shooting the issue, because I really need to continue working. The re-image allowed me to re-install on a fresh machine and everything worked fine. But, now I am stuck again and have no idea what is causing the issue. I cannot spend the time re-imaging again, so I need to find a solution ASAP.
I tried to uninstall but I cannot find an unistaller in the STS directory, start menu or Add and Remove Programs. I have tried re-installing but that doesn ot help, and I have tried upgrading to STS 2.6 but the same issue remains. Besides I would like to stick to the same version the rest of the team is using.
I have a HP Compaq 6910
