SQL Developer 4.1.2 (64 Bit) Crashes on MS Windows 7 When Double Clicking SQL Script File to Open

Angel PerezNov 10 2015 — edited Dec 2 2015

Help needed, please.

It is documented in Oracle Support (Doc ID 1968020.1) that the solution to this problem on the version 4.0 is to select sqldeveloper.exe as the "Opening with" application.

For the version 4.1.2 the instructions on the support document does not fix the problem and I'm still unable to open a sql file by double clicking it from the Windows Explorer Window.

I'd appreciate if anyone could give me some piece of advise.

Thank you!


  1. Open SQL Developer, Select Menu File > Open & select required SQL script file it opens & works fine.
  2. If the SQL Developer application is closed & If you Double click on the SQL script file it opens & works fine.
  3. If SQL Developer is already opened and If you try to open a SQL script file by Double clicking, then it crashes with below error.
