Problems with Java update 4 for Mac OS X 10.5
Update July 11, 2009: The issue is now fixed on the US versions of Shop’NCook Home, Menu and Pro. I will update the international versions and Shop’NCook Reader in a few days – meanwhile use the workaround below.
Java for Mac OS X 10.5 can cause Shop’NCook to crash. I am working on it and hopefully will publish a compatible version of Shop’NCook in a few days. Meanwhile, Shop’NCook users should wait before installing the latest Java update.
Update June 30, 2009: Mmm, the latest Java update seems to be protecting against very serious security vulnerabilities. Forget what I wrote above – do install the update as soon as possible, then applies the easy workaround below to continue using Shop’NCook.
If you have already installed it, here is a simple workaround:
- Open the Java Preferences in folder Applications/Utilities .
- Drag J2SE 1.4.2, 32-bit at the top of the choices for Java applications.
That’s it! By setting Java 1.4.2 as your preferred Java Virtual Machine, Shop’NCook will work again like before.
