I have mountain lion with Java 7 installed but Freemind does not start. It says that "Cannot launch FreeMind. No compatible version of Java 1.4+ available". Kindly help me to solve this issue.
Thanks in advance.
which version of FreeMind did you tested? V1.0.0 RC2?? Can you give a screenshot of this issue?
I tested both V1.0.0 RC2 and 0.9.0.
Unfortunately, I cannot attach screenshot file and shared a link of the screenshot depicting the issue.
it is a system message. So, your system thinks, that java isn't installed. Please try 1.) Install and updating java via http://java.com and 2.) try another java program like jedit.
If Java is not installed then it must prompt to install and not say that it is not compatible with 1.4 version. I think it found the java but it is not compatible with the version used for compiling FreeMind.
Moreover, I mentioned in my first post, I have Java 7 (only) installed on mountain lion. In addition, applied the solution mentioned in the below post:
In case, this setting is not the one expected then I would like to know what is the expected setting after installation of Oracle Java 7.
sorry for you inconvenience. The dialog, you got, is from Mac and not from FreeMind. I would excpect some better error messages from the operating system, too.
First: is FreeMind running, if you use the zip variant, with "bash freemind.sh"?
Second: what happens, if you install and run "jEdit"?
I have not tried the zip version. But I have installed Eclipse Juno and I am able to run Java programs using it with the installed same Java 7.
On further investigation I found the following error in the console:
3/16/13 7:43:59.354 AM com.apple.launchd.peruser.501: ([0x0-0x1a41a4].freemind.main.FreeMind) Exited with code: 1
For more option on current situation of Java 7 on Mac refer first solution in below link. The video link in that explains all.
This situation arises because Apple no longer updates Java instead Oracle is doing it. For this case the app must be bundled using Oracle Java app bundler as mentioned in above links.
I hope this explains and clarifies all your queries.
Thanks & Regards,
