    Ok to fully understand my quarry, read this thread:

    I am Thomas211. Anyways, if you're too lazy to go and read that, I need to run java 1.7, but OS X isn't letting me. I'm at the point where Java 1.7 is showing up in the 'Java Preferences' app and I installed the 1.7 JDK, but if I try to run something like minecraft, it will run it with Java 1.6, and if I tell Java preferences to disable 1.6 and only use 1.7, it will say I don't have a compatible Java 1.6+ version, even though 1.7 is compatible...

    IIRC, it is a violation of the rules of this forum to link to other user forums. I notice that you claim that the help that your received on that other forum worked.

    Why are you complaining about the good people here when you have already received the help "you need" on your other forum?

    It sounds like Minecraft is not compatible with Java 7, so drops back to running on Java 6. Even if you put Java 7 first on that pref. list, if an app requires Java 6 it will use that.
