The Mac install instructions state I will need Java 6. My 64 bit Mac Powerbook Pro (OS 10.9.5) currently has Java 8 update 73. Are these compatible with Astroimagej? If not, must I remove Java 8 before installing Java 6?
I'm not sure if Java 6 is still required. I'm sorry I can't be more precise with my answer, but I don't have a machine
that I can do a fresh install on. Could you let us know if AIJ will run without installing Java 6? If it starts up, I
think it will run just fine. Either way, you shouldn't have to remove Java 8 to install Java 6.
It seems Java 6 is still required despite the fact that I have Java 8 already on my system (MacOS 10.9.5). Astroimagej wouldn't start up without it. After I loaded Java 6, Astroimagej seems to be running normally.
