I recently nstalled netbeans 7.2 on my computer(running windows 7) and when I click on the desktop icon/in the taskbar etc netbeans won't start up. I've uninstalled and reinstalled it twice now and am unsure what I should do next.

I have the latest version of Java SDK and it found it. when I hit the log it prints

 the launcher has determined that the parent process has a console and will reuse it for its own console output. 

Closing the console will result in termination fo the running program. java.io.FileNotFoundExeption: \lock(access is denied) and Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException

Think we need more info to help you solve that... –  0909EM Aug 24 '12 at 23:04
    
what would you like to know? when i click the icon, the computer looks like it's doing something for 2 seconds then nothing –  user1393064 Aug 24 '12 at 23:06
    
I am downvoting this. You need to give more info on what is happening. "It doesn't work" is not the type of question to ask here. –  siebz0r Aug 24 '12 at 23:15
    
it's not starting? there is nothing else I can say because it isn't doing anything. –  user1393064 Aug 24 '12 at 23:26

1 Answer 1

A downvote seems a bit harsh... Can you run the trace from the command line? From the command line run:

netbeans.exe --trace C:\netbeans.log

post the log or your solution if you fix it...

Other suggestions from the top of my head are either you need a later version of the Java SDK, the path to the Java SDK is incorrect, your missing an environment variable, or you dont have the memory available to run the IDE? Alternatively corrupted plugins, or user data from a previous installation is causing you problems.. Just suggestions, think you need to provide more info...

Have just downloaded and installed Netbeans 7.2 and it works fine on Win 7, x64

Have you tried run as administrator? Alternatively a good place to ask this question would be the netbeans forums... –  0909EM Aug 24 '12 at 23:56
    
yeah no luck running it as administrator. –  user1393064 Aug 25 '12 at 0:00
