ProjectLibre stopped working several months ago. I get a "requires Java 6" error when I try to run it. I've uninstalled ProjectLibre and Java then installed the latest versions of both. Since I run Windows 7 64 bit I've tried both 32 and 64 bit Java. The problem remains. I have a volunteer project that looks like it is going to come to life and it would be great if I can get ProjectLibre up and running.

If Java ins't properly installed checks in .msi package may fail. In this case it's better to download the .zip and run in command line:
java -Xms128m -Xmx768m -jar projectlibre.jar
I just downloaded ProjectLibre for the first time on my new Macbook. I am only running Java 1.7 and will not install Java 6 which is now unsupported unless you have a commercial contract with Oracle.
When trying to launch the ProjectLibre.app, I also receive the "Requires Java 6, do you want to install it now" dialog. Since Java 6 is end-of-life I would strongly recommend removing any requirement or reference to that platform. If your software performs an install of Java 6 where it has been removed you will be re-introducing serious security vulnerabilities into the environment.
On the Mac installation, the Java 7 JRE installer does not create the "java" symlink for running applications from the command line so I installed the full JDK for 1.7.0_17. Trying to run the .app from Finder still failed with the Java 6 error message. Executing it from the command line as noted above does start the software, but you should investigate why the application launcher is failing to recognize a valid "greater than Java 6" installation.
If you need any assistance troubleshooting please let me know what I can do to help.
projectlibre-1.5.4.dmg is for Java 6 only, if you have Java 7 on your Mac you need projectlibre-1.5.4-java7.dmg installer:
That is great! I did not see the link to the Java 7 version. Thank you for the quick response! I am looking forward to using the software!
Any chance on getting a projectlibre-java7.rpm too?
