JDeveloper IDE Starts With Administrator Rights Only
Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017
Applies to:Oracle JDeveloper - Version: 10.1.3.1.0
Information in this document applies to any platform.
When starting it up with a user with admin rights, it opens without any problem.
However, when trying with a standard user (without the admin privileges), the Splash Screen displays, but the progress bar doesn't show any activity.
Trying to run JDeveloper from the java console, by executing "jdev.exe" from your <JDeveloper_Home>\jdev\bin nothing happens.
Trying to do the same with the Microsoft utility "Process Monitor" on your machine
and filtering the events on the "Process Name": "jdev.exe", you see that JDeveloper is trying to create files in a directory
in an infinite loop:
where <JDeveloper_Home> is your JDeveloper Home.
The column "Result" shows "ACCESS DENIED".
See the following figure showing a screenshot of the "Process Monitor":
