I'm having a problem playing games on Pogo.com. When I click on a game it says I need to download Java. I click download, it says Apple has its own version and to update my software. Did that, doesn't work. I found this article.†[URL]. I found the Java preferences folder, it looks exactly like this, except that I don't have the "Enable applet plug-in and webstart applications" box on mine. Is there any way to uninstall and reinstall Java?
What has been released to install as a security update? I seem to be clicking on one web link which takes me to another and nothing to actually install. Typical Apple. Really wish I hadn't bought this MacCrap Air - I do miss my PC.
I was running java 1.6.0_33 on my Mac Lion and later I installed java 1.7.0_05. Now in my Java preferences I see both the Java SE available.Now my problem is when I enable Java 7(& select Enable applet plug-in and Web start applications), my JNLP file doesn't run with java web start, from Safari as well as Firefox. When I try running the jnlp using Open With option and selecting Java Web Start present in /System/Library/CoreServices, nothing happens.¬†
When I try running the JNLP file from Terminal suing command /System/Library/CoreServices/Java Web Start.app/Contents/MacOS/Java Web Start xyz.jnlp I get following error¬†
Java Web Start splash screen process exiting... Can not find message file : No such file or directory.¬†
Since the flurry of 2012 updates, Java is completely broken on my Mac Pro.¬† Java dependent apps don't start and Apple Support says to enable the apps in Java Preferences.¬†Nice idea, but Java Preferences WILL NOT LAUNCH either.¬†There were plenty of tools to address flashback and they DID NOT break normal day to day operations.I downloaded the package from support to try a re-installation, but it says "A newer version of Java is already installed" and offers me the option to Close. No reinstall, nothing.¬†Apple support is at it's usual level of service on this issue, completely INVISIBLE.¬†
I made a Java applet with Xcode 3.2¬†and i load it to firefox or Safari(Yeah i've updated my java)and for example¬†
i made a HELLO WORLD simple applet to be in black color letters, then compiled and yeah it worked but then i redid it for the letters to be red.. and they kept being black..no matter how many times i recompiled the applet.¬†
And yeah the HTML is pointing to the correct class file.¬†Also, If if i add a Thread and implement runnable.. then nothing shows up in the canvas.¬†
And also, what ever happened with the appletviewer application? We don't have that anymore.
now the only way to run applets is through a web browser. ¬†Is java applet developement in 10.6 really over?
I am brand new to Mac (I got a G4 laptop in trade to replace a dead windows desktop).I am trying to install Limewire and it tells me that I cannot: "could not launch application because it requires a version of Java that is not installed". It goes on to acknowledge that it can see everything up to 1.5...but that I need 1.6.
So, I go to Software Update and make sure that I have 1.6. It tells me that there are no new updates, that my computer is up to date.I think I recall being told that I am running Leopard on this laptop.If java 1.6 is available, and I do not have it, and my computer tells me that there are no new updates that my computer needs and will not automatically grab java 1.6, yet I need it to install anapplication....what are my options?
how can i force a program to use java 6 instead of java 7?im trying to use tekkit (minecraft mod) and i need java 7 for the sever but java 6 for the lancher?how i could force the lancher into using java 6?
Is there way to tell which apps use Java, similiar to checking System Information?¬†With the fury about the Flashback Trojan, I would like to turn off Java. Unfortunately, my password safe app uses Java. I would like to see how many apps I might have to replace to be Java-free.
how I know if Java is enabled on my Mac? I'm getting confused as some of the programs I've bought need Java to be running,¬† but information on the Java Tester Website indicates it is not necessarily encouraged by Apple. Copy of information from Java Tester Website below:¬†"April 3, 2012Important security updates issued. See More than 600,000 Macs infected with Flashback botnet andJava update for OS X patches Flashback malware exploit. Mac users running OS X 10.5 Leopard should not use Java, because Apple has stopped supporting Java on Leopard. The last version of Java for OS X 10.5 has known bugs that will not be fixed. Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 7 updates Java to 1.6.0_31Java for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion 2012-001 updates Java to v1.6.0_31"¬†
I don't know what to do here. Do I not install Java - assuming it isn't already installed (and that raises another question, how do I find out if it is installed?)¬† ¬†It seems that not having it installed is affecting the ability of certain programs to run on my Mac, so is there an alternative program I could use? My Mac is OS X Version 10.7.4.¬†
My iMac is fairly old -- 2006 -- and many of the important programs I use, plus my beloved Bose external speakers, are completely inaccessible. I'd like to uninstall it and go back to Snow Leopard.¬†Is it as simple as inserting the disk and reinstalling?¬† How do I get RID of Lion.
The printer I have will not work with mac OS above 10.6 and i HAVE 10.7.3. If possible I would like to uninstall the latest software (I do not think I have any programs that require 10.7.3) so I can use my printer.
i need to uninstall xcode 4.3 because i found out my installation was corrupt. i used CleanMyMac to uninstall the app, but i can't dowload it from the app store because it sais it's still installed. i looked and the /Developer folder doesn't exist and neither does the app file in the applications folder.
I was not seeing the Java Update show up in my Software Update, so I installed the Java Security Update 2012-001 manually.¬† What I did not know was that I did not have Java before, and now I do.¬† How do I remove Java and get back to a clean Mac OS X Lion installation?¬†I have a Macbook Pro, early 2011 version.¬†
