Hello everyone,

 

I have been reading the various threads on this issue, but found no answer to my problem:

I am under Lion version 10.7.5 - MacBookPro

I need Java 6 for a program I use for my work.

 

When I want to install from Java Preferences, i get the following message:

"To open “Java Preferences,” you need to install a Java SE 6 runtime, but you are not connected to the Internet." But I AM connected to the internet.

 

Accroding to waht I read, I went to the Apple download files and downloaded JavaForOSX.dmg file...

But when I want to install it, I get the message:

 

"Alert: A newer version of this package is already installed."

 

When I run terminal java -version

 

The answer is "No Java runtime present, requesting install."

 

And thus I am back to where I started...

 

If you could help that would be incredibly helpful!

 

Thanks

Helene

DLing anything via WiFi is the slowest method, Although http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4718 describes the process, it's scant on details using an ethernet connection, but apparently, you first connect via WiFi, then switch to ethernet. All I can suggest is that you contact Apple's Express Lane and let them sort out this nonsense for you. My machine isn't capable of using it.
