It is most likely software that requires Java 6. Try the link shown in post #51.Aloha,
I am lost with java on El Captain! I have installed "jdk-8u60-macosx-x64.dmg" but I still get this dialog. This is the first time that I have had a issue with java on the mac OS X platform.
Did you find a solution to your issue? Do you have any advice for me?
So I followed the instructions in reply #5, but it wouldn't let me perform the first of the two commands, since this is not a virtual machine. However, I ran the second of the two, turned the rootless back on, rebooted, and then it allowed the install to go forward. I'm waiting for it to finish, so not sure how well CS5 will perform once install is complete, but I am optimistic. I'll post the results here after I test it.Its good to know that Java is having issues, because I need java on my machine and losing the ability will cause issues. I'm still rocking with Yosemite, so its good to be safe then sorry.
For some reason, the "Download" button has now disappeared from the apple support page, making it impossible to download the DMG file. But the file itself is still on Apple servers and I managed to find its URL thanks to the Internet Archive.
Thank you!!Did anyone figure out a way how to install Apple's Java 6 on a machine running 10.11?
I keep getting this error:
"This application requires the legacy Java SE 6 runtime which is unavailable for this version of OS X."
I have Java 8 JDK Update 45 installed on my computer.
See Terminal java -version:
java version "1.8.0_45"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_45-b14)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.45-b02, mixed mode)"
Trying to install Java for OS X 2014-001 which is the latest release of Apple's Java (that I know of at least) I get this error:
"Java for OS X 2014-001 can't be installed on this disk. A never version of this package is already installed."
