    I just bought a mac last week and i just play to one game: Football Manager 07.

    I tried to install it but the install assistant said to me that he can't found the Java Virtual Machine.

    I have the new mac OS X 10.6.02 ...

    Does it happened to anyone else? Someone can help me ?

    PS: I'm sorry for my bad English, but I come from a French country so I can't speak English at well ...

    Thank you very much.

    Probably an installer problem . . .

    I'm not much of a gamer, but some quick Googling found a similar
    MacRumors post from October 2009. Seems like maybe the game's
    installer has problems finding the right JRE/JVM. Do you have the most
    current game version 7.02?

    The only solution at that time was to contact the game maker.

    For fun, go to Applications -> Utilities and run "Java Preferences" - see if
    you have Java SE 6 installed.

    Another thought: since this game is 3 years old (and maybe 32-bit), it may
    not be all that compatible with your Snow Leopard environment. But this
    still means you need to contact the game maker and find out what's wrong.

    Hope this helps . . .

    I've already tried swapping them around on java preferences.
    The game works fine on the windows - so yeah, maybe it is that it doesn't work well with snow leopard.

    I know that java is there because if I go onto terminal and type "java -version" then it comes up that java runtime environment is installed.

    I updated my computer this morning, so it's up to date.

    Ok - i'll contact the game company.
