So discovered max wouldn’t run on my brand new laptop. Said I needed Java. I installed Java 8 before I realised I need version 6 for max. I removed all traces of Java 8 but the Java 6 installer still insists that I have a newer version installed.
I don’t believe that Max requires Java.
Very old versions of Java are not maintained and contain dangerous security holes if used with a computer that has internet access.
i’m assuming you tried doing this: https://support.apple.com/kb/dl1572?locale=en_US
i have had success installing java with homebrew before. i think
brew install Caskroom/versions/java6 works.
Installing from homebrew worked. It’s also not showing in chrome so I am assuming I don’t have to many security holes to worry about.
Thanks for the help
