I started having issues when launching a game room on POGO.com a few days ago.  I'm getting an error message saying I have an unsupported version of Java.  I've tried updating software and it shows there are no updates due.  Any suggestions on what can fix this issue?

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    Open Java Preferences and click Restore Defaults.  If that doesn't fix your problem then the site you are connecting to must have updated their requirements for a later java version and there would be nothing you could do on your end to fix it.  Apple is always behind in updating java (for example, fixing the java hole that let flshback through).

     

    I think I read that future support fo apple java will come directly from Oracle.  Hopefully they will be more timely.

     

    Apple prepares upcoming Java updates for OS X

    Clear the historoy & cache of the browser you using for Pogo games.  Repair permissions and restart your computer.  Try the site again.  If still having issues, follow the instructions on Pogo's tech support site in the Mac section.

    No.  As I said there is nothing you can do on your end.  The apple version of java is not the "standard" java since apple always has to add their stuff to it for OSX.  If software update doesn't say it needs:

     

    Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 8

     

    then I assume you  already have that installed and that is apple's "current" version of java.

    Just to share - both Chrome and Safari could not run Java.

     

    Did what one of you suggested:

    > opened a new Finder window

    > searched "Java"

    > scrolled down to the "Java Settings" maybe "Java options"/"Java Valg" (in Norwegian)

    > restored the general settings under each tab "general" and "Network" - now everything runs perfectly again.

     

    Many thanks!

    How can I get Safari to recognise Java?

    I have Windows 7. 

    I am trying to play Yahoo Bridge using Safari. 

    When I go to the page https://login.yahoo.com/config/login_verify2?.intl=uk&.src=ga&.done=http://uk.pl ay.yahoo.com/games/login%3fgame=Bridge, I get a dialogue box with the message “Java is unavailable – The page Yahoo Games attempted to load Java, but Java is available or not installed.  Do you want to … download Java?” 

    Java is installed.  It works with Firefox. 

      How can I get Safari to recognise Java?

    You are asking this question in a Mac Hardware forum?
