Hello.
First of all I am French so please excuse me for my English.
I tried to install Java on my MAC but unfortunately the download of the software always meets the same problem... It asks me to be under mac OS X 10.7 but my computer does not propose me update. What should i do ?
Thank you


iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

Note: Java 1.6 for Leopard is 64 bit only, but for Snow Leopard it is available for both 32 and 64 bit.

Since August 2012 updates for Java (and especially Java Runtime Environment, which is what you actually need) must now be downloaded direct from Oracle:

However, if you need the Jave 6 JRE and plug-in, MadMAC0 has posted at

Apple has also posted (Oct 22/12) the approved solution for restoring the Java 6 plug-in:
