After editing my user preferences and forgetting a comma, Sublime gave me an error message for that file, and did not launch. So I edited the file with another program (replacing the comma). Now Sublime still does not launch. What do I do?
You have to kill the running session also. Press ctrl+shift+escape to bring up the task manager, find sublime_text.exe in the list and kill the process. Now you should be able to launch it again.
BTW jps, this happens when an error dialogue shows up before the main Sublime Text 2 window does when launching the program on Windows platforms. OS X and Linux start fine when there's an error dialogue.
Ah, that's what it was - I didn't notice that the settings file was actually in a separate directory from the rest of the plugin. I deleted the settings file and the editor launches fine now (too bad about the WordCount plugin though...)
