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"Alert: A newer version of this package is already installed."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




MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

Let us know how things turn out.

DLing anything via WiFi is the slowest method, Although 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.
