Ok you will have to upgrade to Lion or Mountain Lion to install the latest version of Java. Does your Mac fall into one of these categories?OS X Mountain Lion system requirementsTo install Mountain Lion, you need one of these Macs:iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)Xserve (Early 2009)
MacBook Pro later than the date you quote
Great then you just go here and click on Upgrade:http://www.apple.com/osx/to buy and install Mountain Lion, then you can download and install Java from the previous site I mentioned. I suggest you do this first:Open Macintosh HD / Applications / Utilities and double click Disk Utility. Highlight your hard drive, usually Macintosh HD, and click on Verify Disk on the far right. If that is OK in green type, then click on Repair Permissions on the left. If that is all OK you can proceed. Let me know if you get stuck.If you are satisfied, please kindly Accept and provide OK Rating - or Above. Thanks. If not please Reply to Expert and let me know, I am here until we can fix the problem.
Sorry, where is Macintosh HD?
Can you assist with which version of Mountain Lion I need, please?
There is only one version if you click on Upgrade Now:
Sorry but it doesn't then tell me where to go next?
Mike - that's fine but it doesn't tell me what to do next
How long does downloading take, please, it seems to be rather a while?
Mike - Got there in the end. Thankyou for your help earlier.
