Hi Michael, I'll be happy to help with this issue - it does seem to come up frequently with D-Link camera
can you try the following test to see if the D-Link camera/Java works correctly?
Go to Apple menu-->System Preferences--<Users
click the padlock icon to make changes
and then use the + icon to add a new user
once a new user has been created, restart the Mac and login there
and then see if the camera/java environment functions correctly
Let me know and I'll be able to advise further
Do you mean >System Preferences--<Accounts?
I found this article...Is there a safe workaround?
NEW YORK, N.Y. - Some Mac users were taken by surprise Thursday as their computers stopped running programs written using the Java programming language after Apple blocked Java due to security problems.
Java allows programmers to write a wide variety of Internet applications and other software programs and run them on most computers, including Apple Inc.'s Mac.
However, earlier this month the U.S. Department of Homeland Security recommended disabling Java in Web browsers to avoid potential hacking attacks. Oracle Corp., which owns Java, has issued updates that fix known vulnerabilities, but the DHS expects that there are more flaws in Java's coding.
Apple sends out virtual "blacklists" to Internet-connected Macs, instructing them not to run certain programs. Apple is blocking the latest version of Java from running on the most recent versions of its Mac operating system, and blocking an older version, Java 6, from running on the older version of its Mac system, called Snow Leopard. The blocks affect programs and online games that use Java in Web browsers.
Oracle had no immediate comment on Apple's action.
Among those Java users inconvenienced by the unannounced block was the photo department of The Associated Press, which relies on a Java application to manage and distribute photos.
"The situation caught us by surprise and a number of our machines could not operate for a time, but we had enough capability to work around the problem in the meantime," said AP spokesman Paul Colford. "We expect the affected machines to be operating by day's end."
Thanks...I went to the Java site and couldn't find an update for JRE 6 (Java Runtime Environment 6) for the Mac. I saw it for other OS's (Linux, Windows, and the Oracle legacy systems), but not Mac. In any event, other articles in MacRumors say Apple isn't blocking v6, but I don't think that's the case since 3 computers stopped working at once. I didn't think Apple had that capability unless you do a system update...that's kind of scary even though they are protecting us!
Yes, I can understand the theory of them doing it but can be a major pain just disabling a chunk of functionality
hoping to have a workaround shortly
Ok - if you go to Apple menu-->System Preferences-->Java and then choose Update
it should retrieve the latest version which is not blocked by Apple
Let me know if that isn't available for any reason
Java's not in my system preferences. I have a Java Preferences application in my utilities folder. It has some controls and several tabs, but no update feature.
The version I have is: 1.6.0_37-b06-434 64 bit and 32 bit. I'll keep looking for a Mac version download, but if you find it, please send me the link.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX a Java 7 file to resolve the issue
uploading it now
Let me know if that works ok...
Since I'm using OS10.6.8 Java 7 won't work with this system...It only works on 10.7 and after. Apple offered an update to Java 6 today which has fixed the problem. Apparently, the security problem is resolved to Apple's satisfaction, though it might not be gone for good. Thanks for your time and the link.
