Just wiped my drive and installed a fresh version of Lion via Lion recovery mode.


I install Adobe Photoshop CS6, etc., but on opening Photoshop, Illustrator or InDesign I get the 'You need Java runtime' message. I spoke with Adobe, and they clarified that no part of CS6 requires Java Runtime; that it's an old bit of code in Lion that thinks Adobe needs it.


So, sounds like I need to install it, even though it's not needed.


Can it be removed or diabled after the intital launch, or does it sound like Lion is going to want it there, even though it's not needed by CS6? I know there is a Java Preferneces utility that Lion does install, and maybe it can be turned off there?
