RapidMiner Studio Hangs on Launch "Initializing Plugin GUI"

RapidMiner Studio 8.2 on MacOS 10.13.4

 

When I launch RapidMiner Studio, the program starts to load, but hangs on the step "Initializing Plugin GUI" and wont finish loading.  If I disable "Initialize Extensions" the the program will load, but obviously it will not have any extensions, including "Auto Model".  What is the root cause of this problem and how can I solve it beyond just disabling "Initialize Extentions"?  It does not seem to be related to any individual extension as if I disable all of them in the extension manager, it doesn't solve this problem.

    hi @tim_davis - seems that one extension is causing the problem. You can enable / disable them one by one in the Extensions --> Manage Extensions" menu. I'd try there.

    That is not the problem.  I deleted all the extension I could in the manage extension dialog and that did not resolve the issue.  I mentioned this in my initial post.

    oops sorry @tim_davis my error. In that case I would recommend making a backup copy of your .RapidMiner folder and then empty the folder completely out. When you restart RapidMiner, it will make fresh versions of all those files.

    What is the normal path to this directory?  I can't seem to find it.

    Hi @tim_davis,

     

    the .RapidMiner folder is (by default) stored at the following location : 

     

    C:\Users\Username

     

    Regards,

    I deleted the directory /Users/"username"/.RapidMiner, but that does not seem to have changed the situation at all.  The behavior was exactly the same the next time I tried to launch RapidMiner Studio, and the directory was recreated during that launch.

    ok I'm starting to see what's going on here. You're starting this from the CL so that's already unusual. And the hang is not on an extension - that's all default stuff. Can you please send your rapidminer-studio.log file to me via PM?

    can you share your rapidminer-studio.log file? You can find it in your .RapidMiner user folder.
    Cheers
