Zend (ZDE) crash raising InvocationTargetException

Bad things happens from time to time…
Today my zend environment crashed. Issue was some JRE error… as below
Googled a bit for the solution, and i found something that might help others to have a short advice on how to fix it.

??Invocation of this Java Application has caused an InvocationTargetException. This application will now exit. (LAX)?.
After pressing ??Details??, this error is displayed:
Application Exception Details:
java.lang.StackOverflowError

Why? The Zend support said: “This problem is due to a problem in the configurations files of ZDE.” Even i did not changed anything from yesterday… but…:) they have right. following next step, all works again.

1. Close ZDE.
2. Locate the fileTypes directory under
{your user home directory}\ZDE\config_x.x\fileTypes and delete it.
(For versions of Zend Studio older than 3.5.x this directory is named:
{Your user home directory}\ZDE\config\fileTypes)
3. Start ZDE again.

Hope that will help somebody, and release him from spending time by searching for solutions, as i did…
