How to Resolve Aptana Not Responding in Windows 7

One day, I opened Aptana Studio 3.4.2 (build: 3.4.2.201308081805) in Windows 7, it stuck and the application showed.

If you are looking for a solution, you can try mine. In my solution, I specify an external and newest JRE for Aptana to run, instead of using the internal, maybe problematic or out of date JRE bundled in Aptana (Eclipse).

  1. Download the newest JRE.
  2. Download Free Java Software

  3. Install the newest JRE.
  4. You have to know the installation path of JRE. In this case, the path to executable files is C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin

  5. Make Aptana point to the newest JRE.
  6. Add two lines (red color below) to AptanaStudio3.ini and also increase Java heap (blue color below). The file is at C:\Users\XXXXXX\AppData\Local\Aptana Studio 3\AptanaStudio3.ini

    ...
    -name
    Aptana Studio 3
    -vm
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\javaw.exe

    -vmargs
    -Xms256m
    -Xmx1024m

Then, I opened Aptana, and I succeeded.
