Whenever I try to open a .jar file, I get this error message:

I really need to be able to open .jar files. I have been able to open them in the past; I really don't know what happened.

Java is up to date.

Everything is up to date.


Java settings is set to default.


oh, I'm on Leopard Version 10.5.8 - I doubt the problem is the operating version though because I have been able to

open .jar files in the past without a problem.


Please help me. - I don't know what went wrong with my computer...




MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
