"Java installation problem "broke" NeoOffice, simple fix"

March 10, 2011  |  By KerryGinn--2008

 |  Version: Apple Java for OS X 10.6 Update 4

Pros

Apple's newest version is closer to the Java standard used by other platforms.

Cons

Problems with automatic update can be difficult to diagnose. (I set the product rating to 3 stars only because I was required to select a rating; I would have preferred not to rate it.)

Summary

On some machines, Apple's automatic update leaves an older version of Java running in tandem with the updated version, causing NeoOffice to crash upon startup. Fix/workaround: Open the utility Java Preferences.app and uncheck, or turn off, the obsolete versions in the General pane; leave the newest version turned on. In the one case that I saw, the two entries for the new Java version, both 64-bit and 32-bit, were marked "(System)", the older ones were not.
