    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.

    Doesn't appear to be a download link on that page. Am I missing something?

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

    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.
