Can't launch the CommandLine


The commandline cannot be started. When trying to launch it, it would crash.



This behavior is occurring in version 5.3.1 and below.



In the commandline log file you will see a specific error message (located in the Commandline_Installation_directory/commandline-workspace/.metadata and named .log)

!ENTRY org.eclipse.core.resources 2 10035 20YY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS.XXX !MESSAGE The workspace exited with unsaved changes in the previous session; refreshing workspace to recover changes.



This behavior can be resolved by:

  • Renaming the current commandlineworkspace to commandline-workspace-back (for example)
  • Re-starting the commandline
