Does anyone know if there is a workaround for the java applet not working. Ever since the update on October 16th, I have not been able to run any java programs online. Everytime I go to run a Java program I get this message: "To open this Web Start application, you need to download the Java Runtime Enviroment" and it prompts me to download Java 7 from oracle's website. That notwithstanding, once I download Java 7 it opens but the little coffee cup times out and I can't launch the program.

 

Any one know a solution for this? Will Apple be reinstalling Java? Help!!!

    CT,

     

    I had a problem with Scottrade's Scottrader Streaming Quotes Java app after the October 16 update. Som parts of the app's drop down menus had stopped working. I went to the support link you provided and foloowed the instuctions for disabling Java 7 and reenabling Java Web Start. It appears to have fixed the problem.

     

    Thanks for your help.

     

    Wish I could give you a green checkmark for solving my problem but I think only the OP gets to do that.

    Pearson has put out an update for PowerSchool Gradebook.  I called our district tech department and they simply installed the update district wide.  It works just fine.

    Did you ever find a solution for PowerTeacher?  I need to get this on my home computer.  When you called the tech dept was the update on the school's end to where they updated PowerTeacher and voila it worked at home?

    Yup.  It doesn't matter where you access it from.  Once the district upgraded PowerSchool/PowerTeacher, Gradebook once again worked with java. 

     

    Good luck!

    Worked for me too. Which is very useful as the previous workarounds have meant deleting installations completely and then re-installing an earlier Java!  I keep forgetting to click the checkmark when Apple sends out an update! I wish they would fix this bug for older mac users.
