Zend Studio Unexpectedly Quit Fix

Zend Studio is a really good PHP IDE for Linux well worth the money. Although it has a high price tag this doesn’t mean that its bug free. I some times have little quirks with it but they seem to have been fixed since I added more ram. Anyway recently while I was trying to use Zend it just would not open. I had to use another PHP IDE on my Linux box until I could figure out the problem. Well, the problem was:

 This Application has Unexpectedly Quit: Invocation of this Java Application has caused an InvocationTargetException. This application will now exit. (LAX)

Reinstalling Zend does not fix the issue. The issue seems to be in the configuration directory. All you have to do to fix this issue is:

 rm -r ZDE

I’d make a back up first if I were you, just incase, but mine was broken and I didn’t really have anything in the config directory except some saved urls so I just deleted it. Now my Zend Studio works like it used to again! Hurray!, Now I hope it wont do this again for another 6 months or so.
