When at pogo.com and trying to play Mahjong, I get a message from them about Java. Game tries to load, 2-3 mins, then:

"The following error has occurred:
Java Not Found or Not Working

Explanation:
You must have Java installed on your computer in order to run Pogo games, and it must be functioning properly. This error means you either don't have Java installed yet, or your Java is not working correctly.

How to fix the problem:
Java is a free download that is required to play Pogo games. Not all computers come with Java pre-installed. If you haven't played Pogo games before and are getting this error, you probably just need to install Java on your computer. Click Here for instructions on installing Java for your operating system and browser.
If you already have Java installed and are getting this error, your Java may be out-of-date or is no longer working. In that case, your Java needs to be upgraded or reinstalled. If you need help, click here. "

I do have Java enabled. I tried a download and install of MRJ 2x. Right off the bat I got messages about having newer stuff already and did I want to replace. EG, "svensk" is newer, do you want to replace?" , or words to that effect.

(My OS X vol is whacky and I'm using OS 9 and Exploder 5.0 right now.)

Thanks!

David

    I play Pogo games. Boy are you soooooooo 19th century.
    Pogo.com website is now up to the 21st century & you must keep up too!

    You will need to update your OS to at least OS 9.1.

    Update to Internet Explorer v5.1.7
    Increase it's preferred memory-300%
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=18278 Mac OS: Assigning More Memory to an Application Program.
    The same directions are also in the OS Mac Help Menu.

    Download & install:
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=75097 Mac OS Runtime for Java 2.2.5

    After doing all of the above, rebuild your desktop.
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=10182 Rebuilding Desktop File and Icon Recovery.

    Since IE is no longer supported & you want to continue playing Pogo games w/o any problems, you will need to do the following from now on:
    Once a week in IE Edit>Preferences, delet History, Empty Cache (if you have cable set Cache to 0).

    Once a week Go into the system folder>preferences folder & trash the following preferences:
    finder
    ASLM
    PPC Registration Database
    Cache.waf-found inside the MS Internet Cache folder
    MRJ Cache folder-a new one will be recreated.(If not found go to System folder>Application Support>MRJ Cache folder-trash all you find inside-(DO NOT TRASH THIS FOLDER)
    Download Cache-found inside Explorer Folder
    Downloads.html-found inside Explorer Folder
    History.html-found inside Explorer Folder

    Rebuild your desktop w/extensions off. Use Techtool Lite or Trash*Desktop - may delete Finder comments to rebuild your desktop w/extensions off. Does a better job than manually & you avoid all the finger gymnatics. You just have to hold down the shift key to shut off extensions.
    Restart to turn the extensions back on again & empty the trash.

    If you want to rebuild manually, see KB article http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=10182 Rebuilding Desktop File and Icon Recovery.
    ---------------------------

    TIP: You can also play Pogo games on iCab without doing all of the above *browser maintenance*. You can get it @ Mac browsers

    David,
    I stand corrected. Your original post stated you had OS 9 (To me that means OS 9.0) & using outdated MRJ reason for my 19th century statement on a 21century game site.
    Sorry, but we need specific info to give correct troubleshooting* information.

    CORRECTIONS: Since you now confirm that you have OS 9.2.2 you must download http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=120209 Mac OS
    Runtime for Java 2.2.6

    Pogo games requires the most updated MRJ to your current OS system.

    IE v5.1.7 is a memory hogger & leaker. If you have plenty of real RAM, you must at least allot-300% since you play java games.

    I got rid of IE because I got tired of babysitting it because it's no longer supported.
    iCab is the only browser under OS 9.x you can play Pogo games w/o all the TLC (Tender Loving Care).

    PS: I may still use OS 9.1, but you better believe it's the 21st version. I have no browser problems & it does what I want it to do.

    David: To force a reboot, use Command-Control-Power key. Command-Option-Power key does nothing, as far as I know. There has never been a "Force Reboot" key on any Mac. You may have misread the instructions in "The Missing Manual".

    I can't answer your iCab questions, never having tried to get anything from IE or OE (except far away) ;o)

    Never seen a Force Quit key either. Maybe he means to hold down the Command key while clicking the onscreen Force Quit button that's offered when you click Cmd-Opt-Escape. That button alone doesn't always do the trick, and maybe holding down the Cmd key while you click it improves its percentage. This is just a guess. (Is this The Missing Manual for OS 9 you're reading, or the one for Panther?)

    How bout migrating Address Book .app to iCab?


    Dunno — I don't use Address Book.app either. I've used nothing but Eudora for email for almost exactly 10 years, ever since I ditched AOL.

    Hi, David. All this ricocheting back and forth between OS 9 and OS X questions, without any clarity about which they are, has certainly complicated this thread and the process of solving your problems. I encourage you to repost your current Panther problem in the Panther forums, where it belongs. When you do so, be sure to say what version of Diskwarrior you're trying to use.

    Mail may be a nifty application, but Eudora is what I'm used to, and it serves all my needs well. I do use the latest OS X-native version of it.

    "How bout migrating Address Book .app to iCab? "
    iCab does not have it's own email program like Netscape.

    "I've also been using Nutscrape 7. It freezes fairly frequently"
    You already know what I'm going to say! LOL

    Download the latest version for OS 9.2.2 which is v7.0.2 & increase its preferred memory to 300%. It's also a memory hogger & leaker.
    Here are some links where you can download from:
    Netscape Browser Archive

    Netscape v7.0.2

    MacUpdate-NC v7.0.2

    Hello,

    I have a Powerbook running the latest Tiger Software. Also, I am using Netscape Navigator.

    I am trying to play Chess at Pogo.com and I am getting the standard Java message that others have posted here.

    It was working fine before but now it won't work. I try Safari and it works fine. I even downloaded Firefox and that doesn't work. Maybe its something with Mozilla.

    Here is the Java message I am getting:

    The following error has occurred:
    Java Not Found or Not Working

    Explanation:
    This error means Java (one of the technologies built into most browsers) is not working correctly on your browser.

    You must have Java installed on your computer in order to run Pogo games, and it must be functioning properly. Either you don't have Java installed yet, or the Web browser you're currently using doesn't support Java or you have Java (or Javascript) disabled in your browser.

    How to Fix the Problem:
    Java is a free download that is required to play Pogo games. Not all computers come with Java pre-installed.

    If you haven't played Pogo games before and are getting this error, you probably just need to install Java on your computer.
    For instructions on installing Java for your operating system and browser click here.

    If you believe Java might be installed but disabled for your browser, please be sure to enable the plugin for your browser. If you need help, click here.

    If you already have Java installed and it is not disabled, your Java may be out-of-date or is no longer working. In that case, your Java might need to be upgraded or reinstalled. If you need help, click here.

    Please help as this is becomeing annoying. Thanks

    "running the latest Tiger Software."
    John Koufopoulos, you posted in the wrong forum. This area is for OS 9.x users.

    Please start a new topic about your issue in the Tiger Forums so it can receive more focused attention.

    Thank You
