There might be issues if you have multiple projects in the workspace targeting different Erlang versions, use coding to fix them.


Erlide won’t start!


  • Did you configure it properly? See Configuration
  • Is your local host name configured properly in /etc/hosts (or c:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts)?
  • Have you checked the cookie settings (see here)?
