I’ve just downloaded the jMonkeyEngine/Platform (from the main downloads page) for the first time and tried running it on my 2011 MacBook Pro running OSx Yosemite 10.10.4. I simply unzipped the download and dragged the application to the Applications folder. The first time I ran it, the loading screen ran properly, I was asked to set the folder and the loading progressed. Then the IDE opened, and loaded all the windows including the content in the Info Screen and a small popup telling me there were 35 updates that needed to be installed.
But as that was happening, spinning beachball of death.
I’ve tried several times including:
- restarting the system,
- clearing preferences and settings (also cleared NetBeans settings just in case),
- tried changing heavyweight canvas settings as described in the sdk:troubleshooting guide
- tried changing the look and feel to nimbus as described in the sdk:troubleshooting guide (the gui did have the nimbus laf but still hung the same way),
- deleted the application, cleared settings and re-installed it
Nothing has worked.

Thanks if any of you have any extra suggestions.
