Design Studio 1.5 Crashes during Startup.

Hello All,

Recently started facing this issue all of a sudden.

The Design Studio 1.5 Client crashes without an error pop up. This happens even before the logon prompt screen shows up.It just doesn't start.


I tried un-installation and re-installation but to no avail. Rebooted my machine but of no use. Upgraded the client from DS1.5 SP00 to SP01 but again in vain.

The log file located at C:\Users\<MyUser>\Analysis-workspace\.metadata contains the below -

!SUBENTRY 1 org.eclipse.equinox.registry 4 1 2015-09-11 10:28:58.851

I have already raised the issue to SAP but the issue is very pressing now. Any help would really be appreciated.

Thanks & Regards,

    Try renaming Analysis-workspace and Analysis-config in your home directory and relaunching Design Studio.

    If deletion of the folders mentioned by mike doesn't work then try clearing out IE cache
