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"Alert: A newer version of this package is already installed."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