I'd love to look at the postinstall script to see what it's unhappy about, but the installer clears up the various temp directories before I am able to see anything. The same thing happens for me with both Java 7 Update 21 and Java 7 Update Any suggestions on how I can get Java7 working on my machine? Posted on Aug 23, AM. That worked with no problem.

You can disable Rootless mode later with: sudo nvram -d boot-args Published by Oliver I am a web developer, I am a software developer.
View all posts by Oliver. You might also want to consider disabling SSL v3. I had a similar problem that was solvable by editing Info. Hi eric3k, thanks for the information! It seems weird to me that this would work. This means that if, in a future update, Apple decides to make Max OS X no longer check for legacy Java at all, then his solution may no longer work.
This meant that when Oracle moved it, it broke compatibility with all software that linked directly to it. I essentially just made the latest Java release from Oracle backwards compatible. Thank you for the qucik answer. But your solution did the trick.
Removing the Java Runtime
Illustrator now running! Many thanks! Thanks to Oliver and eric3k for help solving this problem. I am a complete moron when it comes to all this crap the kind of person who makes her husband set up the DVR and yet I managed to fix this. Woo hoo! Thank you for your help. I am experiencing this problem since I upgraded to Yosemite Error is a Launch Services result code indicating an unknown error , so it could be a number of different things.
Dear Oliver, thanks for your time and response. So, I should have mentioned before that I used to work on OS I upgraded 2 weeks ago to As you suggested in your answer I just tried to run the application from within the. Still, l am wondering why running the normal. I will do some more search to try to figure it out.
InDesign is totally incompatible icon is greyed-out , Photoshop and Illustrator both 5. I would suggest first trying the update I made at the bottom of my post, suggested by another commenter. Another option is to get a newer version of the Adobe products.
Uninstalling the Java Plug-In from Mac OS X 10.7 and Up
I ran the install and it seems to have installed it. How do I add the empty folders as suggested by a user on your blog? Am I missing a command? Read this post and comments a dozen times and was wondering if I need to launch Photoshop or Illustrator via Terminal? Have you tried creating those folders as described by me in the Finder, or by Oliver using the Terminal? My update was a little deceiving for users not familiar with Terminal, in that I only listed the folder paths, not how to create them.
Honestly, I was at the end of my rope…until I found this blog! Aww, thanks Abby! Glad you got it working! Sorry Oliver, I may be partially responsible for this, having dropped a few links to this post on the Apple and Adobe support forums! Hi Kal, thanks for the kind words and links! Thanks, Oliver, for your post. It is still giving me the same error. Note: I have restarted each step of the way to avoid process issues.
Any reason you can think of I might still be getting this error? The error sounds like you did not change the second occurrence on the second command. It seems I forgot to click the notify button via email option below with my first post… I just now discovered you had replied.
I put my project on hold for a few weeks to attend to other business and just returned to it. After working feverishly to relocate your blog, I retried each step along the way and everything now works as planned. Thanks again for your help. Followed a link to here from other forums. OS X All CS6 work except Illustrator. Or elsewhere? And apparently I really should avoid Java 6, yes? Terminal commands: does that mean open Terminal, and copy-and-paste those two phrases in some available place?
Is a restart needed? No gaming, no social media, no 3D anything, no wireless. The only atypical add-on is a Wacom tablet, no mouse. In the third paragraph, I linked to a page that lists the downloads. No restart is required. I trashed the first. I moved what I think downloaded to the desktop, double-clicked it, nothing happens. Went to the Terminal to install the sudo text. NONE of that behaved in a predictable manner.
But Illustrator finally launched. The image you linked shows a Safari incomplete-download file.
Did you double check how much free space you have after you received an alert saying you do not have enough free space? It sounds like either your Internet connection dropped out, disrupting the download, or your 1TB SSD is full or you tried downloading it to another drive that did not have enough space.
Unless the version of Illustrator is not a Java application, there is no way it can run without Java installed. Yes, the download attempt appeared, and was, incomplete.

It was only 60MB. Another similar download that day for something else was also slow, but not nearly as slow as the Oracle. My DSL service is not the best. I only do bare-bones work in Ai. No plug-ins, in Illustrator or otherwise. I do have to add, however, that the utter ridiculousness of this entire process makes me incredibly depressed about the future of our profession.
What a well-informed thread, with many people helped. Oliver, you are a wonder. I did install the latest Java SE, direct from your link in the original post. And then run the terminal commands?
The two folders should not be directly in that Java folder, they should be in subfolders. If that is the case, and they were already there before you did anything, then is it possible Legacy Java was installed on that computer at some stage? Are those folders empty? Oracle has not updated their installers since another commenter has confirmed that it worked.
In fact they contain several other folders and files. Neither is a folder but instead they each are represented by a Lego-type icon. Double-clicking on them does nothing. The CoreDeploy. Large, no? Interestingly besides their size, while their version numbers are the same, Also I found that it was not possible to delete them using the commands that eric3k first posted. Not even when I adjusted the permissions for their parent folders. Before I installed the new Java 8.
Much appreciation for your brain power and time spent on this. Everything you said sounds to me as though Legacy Java was installed on your computer at some stage. It is possible to have both installed, which is likely what you have. You are correct that no legacy installs would be present unless you installed them, but everything you wrote indicates that you or someone using your computer installed it.
It is potentially dangerous and can cause instability with the operating system. The same applies when deleting files and folders in system locations. Posted on Oct 2, PM.
