    SQL developer starts and then disappears without any warning

      Hi, guys:

      I need to use SQL developer where there are existing connections. however, SQL developer 3.1 asked the java.exe location, and I chose java 6, now I can launch SQL developer but not able to continue running it. SQL developer starts and then disappears without any warning. Could anyone help me on this problem?

      Thanks a lot!

          Can you start the exe from the BIN subdirectory? That should open a command console, and maybe you can see any error messages there that explain what's happening. For step-by-step directions, here's some help:

          OR


          Install SQL Developer to a new directory and run it from there and see if that helps you get around your current install's issue.
