Hi all,

 

I'm not sure if it is the right forum to ask these questions.

 

I need to run an application using JRE 6 on mac osx(Lion). I have installed java 6 by the steps in:

 

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5559?viewlocale=sv_SE

 

The problem is that this update also removes the Java Preferences application from the Utilities menu. As well as, when I try to run my jnlp file there is an error which "To open this Web Start application, you need to download the Java Runtime Environment."

 

How can I set Runtime Parameters for example if I cannot access to the Java Preferences? how to add Applet Runtime Parameters?

 

Thanks in advance

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    Check to see if the panel moved to the System Preferences. If, for instance, you install Java 7 from Oracle in Mountain Lion, that's where it is.

    Installing Java 7 should not remove 6.

    Java 6 should still be on the system. Download and install this updater and see if the preferences return.

     

    Not sure how you would set an app to use a specific version of Java.

    Apple's requirement to update Java for the Mac ended with version 6. Oracle is now responsible for all future Java development and deployment. You can get the full Java 7 installer here.

    Java 7 is only available from Oracle and their current version requires Mac OS X 10.7.3 or later, so if you want to run Java 7, you're going to have to update your version of OS X. If you can work with Java 6, the updater Kurt linked to should work on your 10.7.2 system. Have you tried it and had it fail, and if so what error messages are presented, if any?

     

    Regards.

    That's only an updater. I know it's the one I linked to before, but I was hoping Java 6 was already on your system, and the update would fix the issue with it being missing from the Utilities folder. You seem to have lost Java 6 altogether somehow.

    It may be that the test recognizes that components of Java 6 are present, but it's damaged and won't run.

     

    Here's another Java 6 installer for Lion.

     

    This tip may also work to get Lion to reintall Java 6.
