Pinned topic Unable to invoke IBM Data Studio after Windows 7 crash (blue screen)

‏2012-05-10T10:33:04Z |
I'm using 3.1 version of IBM Data Studio. When using it, my system crashed. Now, after reboot, I'm able to connect to the DB2 database, but unable to invoke Data Studio. The javaw.exe is shown in "windows task manager" under "processes" tab. However, after some time it goes off.

The following folder has many log files for the number of invocations of Data Studio.
C:\Program Files\IBM\DSAC3.1\configuration

Contents of the file is provided below:

!SESSION Thu May 10 05:41:52 VET 2012
!ENTRY org.eclipse.equinox.launcher 4 0 2012-05-10 05:41:53.760
!MESSAGE Exception launching the Eclipse Platform:
!STACK

at org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.Main.run(Main.java:1236)
at org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.Main.main(Main.java:1212)

How than this issue be resolved? Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    Perhaps the DS workspace was corrupted when the Windows crash? Could you try opening DS with a brand new workspace?

    Thanks,
    Ivan

    Thanks for the response. However, I'm unable to get into DS to create a new workspace. It is possible to invoke DS with a new workspace? TIA.

    when you launch data studio,it will first ask you to input a workspace,you can just create a new one at that time.

    Thanks, but the issue is that I'm unable to come to the point where I can specify a new workspace.

    The datastudio.ini file contents is as follows:

    -vm
    .\jre\bin\javaw.exe
    -data
    @user.home\IBM\Data Studio 3.1 stand-alone\workspace
    -vmargs
    -Xmx1024m

    Do I need to change anything here, so that DS can start fresh with a new workspace?

    TIA.

    Hi,

    If the workspace input dialog don't show when you start Data Studio, you can change your workspace as following.

    1. If Data Studio can start successful, choose Data Studio menu "File -> Switch workspace -> other" and choose a new workspace.

    2. If Data Studio can't start successful.
    1. "Win+R" and input "cmd"
    2. In the command windows navigate to Data Studio installation location, input "eclipse.exe -data c:\newworkspace" then Data Studio will start and create the newworkspace.

    Thanks. However, I'm unable to find eclipse.exe to invoke the command provided. Still, I tried as suggested and get the following:

    C:\Users\user1>eclipse.exe -data c:\newworkspace
    'eclipse.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.

    C:\Users\user1>

    Is there anything else that can be done to resolve this issue?

    TIA.

    The installation folder where DS is installed also gives the same result...

    If above list all files directly in you installation directory, then I guess the installation isn't successful. you can try to uninstall and then install Data Studio again. In the installation directory, there must include an executable file in windows.

    Thanks.

    Then you can execute “datastudio.exe -data c:\newworkspace”in terminate to create a new workspace.
