Has anyone else experienced SQLdeveloper 4.0.0 hanging on start up on Windows 7.. its hangs at around the 10-15% mark on the progress bar on the splash screen.
Did you try delete old configuration folders? Beware, It's include all properties, including connections, so have copy.
Location: C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\SQL Developer
Thanks for reply.
I deleted the above folder and it has made no difference, any other ideas ?..
May be incompatible java version? I use 1.7.0_25 64 bit.
