    sql developer stops running/disappears without error when mouse over some tooltip.


      Hi all,


      In one of my dev VMs I have both sql developer 4.1.5 and 17.2, both of them experience same problem easy replicated as simply mouse over "anything" inside sql developer gui that would normally display a hovering tooltip.. SQL developer simply disappears/stop running.

      Can you please advise ?

      I would imagine this could be a java issue.. but our IT helpdesk seems stuck in finding a solution, so im posting here, hopefully this problems rings a bell to someone.. thanks.


      windows 7 64bits

      C:\sqldeveloper-\sqldeveloper\*.* contains also jdk

      C:\sqldeveloper-\sqldeveloper\*.* contains also jdk

      C:\sqldeveloper-\sqldeveloper\*.* contains also jdk


      I dont even know where to check for logs..


      In Uninstall or Change a program I found:


      also found :

      C:\oracle\product\11.1.0\client_1\ with a jdk


      but system environment SET only have a PATH to: Path=C:\oracle\product\11.1.0\client_1\bin;

      so typing java.exe in CMD doesnt find anything.


      Can you help/suggest what to do ?

      It seems a java issue as its problem across 3 independent zips from oracle containing internal jdk.. but then there seems to exist some java installed as well in the system despite not PATH reachable..


      Many thanks in advance,
