    Sorry, it requires a developer login, so I cannot provice a link

    This solved our problem:


    /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/XProtect.meta.p list


    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">

    <plist version="1.0">

                            <key>com.macromedia.Flash Player.plugin</key>

    This command solves the problem here for us:


    sudo /usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Delete :JavaWebComponentVersionMinimum" /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/XProtect.meta. plist


    (it removes a key from the mentioned file, requires administrator privileges)

    The thing is that all will not keep apple away from disabling it again... our little app bypasses the webstart and launches fcsvr right from the server.


    NoWebStart - No Problems!

    at me persists the problem. also when i delete the minium webstart requeriements shizzle in the xprotect.meta.plist

  • bastian_kroll Level 1 (0 points)

    THIS HELPS ME! Commenting out the lines in the XProtect.meta.plist!


    Also an update to the Apple Developer 1.6.0_38 solves the problem tested on another machine

  • yabbanoname Level 1 (0 points)

    Nope, XProtect.meta.plist didn't fix it overhere

  • newrulez Level 1 (0 points)

    here you can download the java developer update 1.6.38 WITHOUT develper account



  • Thorsten007 Level 1 (5 points)

    It seems like Apple tried to define Java as the least allowed Java version to be used for WebStart by defining

    JavaWebComponentVersionMinimum = 1.6.0_37-b06-435

    but currently the most recent 'official' version deployed by Apple is 1.6.0_37-b06-434.


    Please note: Commenting out the lines or using the command line i posted above will allow any 1.6 to be used for Java WebStart and so MAY be a SECURITY ISSUE!

  • yabbanoname Level 1 (0 points)

    Well, it removed my Java  again and didn't solve my issue ...

  • emstewart Level 1 (0 points)

    The command to comment the key in the plist file worked for our webstart application.

    Thanks to all of you for the help.



    sudo /usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Delete :JavaWebComponentVersionMinimum" /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/XProtect.meta. plist



    it worked on the 6 systems we have here.

    The solution of htilly solved our problem.

    Thnx a lot

  • WroDo Level 1 (0 points)

    This did solve it for me, and keeps working after reboot:



    sudo defaults write /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/XProtect.meta JavaWebComponentVersionMinimum "1.6.0_37-b06-434"

    sudo chmod +r  /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/XProtect.meta. plist

    What does it do:


    Since 1.6.0_37-b06-434 is actually installed (you can check with "java -version"), I set this as the required version. If the key exists, it won't be set again.

    Yours, Heiko

    It sounds like Apple need to fix this, then.


    Hope they get around to it soon, as I am going to have to use my Windows 7 VM to access our Java Applet.


    I'm not keen on deleted stuff from CoreServices using sudo in Terminal.
