Hi All,

I've got Java 7 installed but when trying to open: "muCommander", i get the following message:
"To Open "muCommander" you need to install the Legacy Java SE 6 Runtime".

Why is that? Shouldn't Java 7 supposed to be backward compatible to Java 6?

I wonder if it is possible to open muCommander using Java 7?

Any clues?

Cheers,
Mickey

Java 7 will not work with muCommander. Just go ahead and tell muCommander to download the Legacy Java SE 6 Runtime and it will work fine. It's a great open source file manager. I've been using it for years and it still works well with El Capitan but you do need the Java SE 6 Runtime.

I'm a former muCommander user but now I use Forklift (in the App store) and it's really good. I also used Pathfinder.

Forklift


FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, S3, iDisk, SMB, AFP and NIS
Connect to any remote volume easily and manage your files quickly across networks.

and more...

Just to add to the mix, I use Double Commander, in part because it also has versions for Linux and Windows; I used to use MuCommander.

these tools make me remember the good old days on the Amiga with Disk Master (and DirectoryOpus later on)

I used Total Commander (was originally called "Windows Commander") back in my Windows days... but have been using PathFinder since I made the switch in 2010... love it and never looked back.
