I am using net beans 6.0.1. There is an error when starting it. Error is;

  A java.lang.IllegalArgumentException exception has occurred.
  Please report this at,
  including a copy of your messages.log file as an attachment.
  The messages.log file is located in your C:\Documents and     
  Settings\Hasitha\.netbeans\6.0\var\log folder.

Here is a print screen of error.

And size of folder ;

     C:\Documents and Settings\Hasitha\.netbeans\6.0\var\log

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

And what does the log file say? – Werner Vesterås Dec 29 '12 at 12:23
If this is your fault (you're a plugin developer), post the code that caused it. If it isn't your fault, this question is off-topic here. Try Super User – Jan Dvorak Dec 29 '12 at 12:24

Make a clean install of Netbeans and re-install/update your JDK, as its a known Netbeans bug in pre-uptodate version. it is said to be fixed now.
