Error installing on mac


#1

I just downloaded the latest release for mac and tried to install but received “JabRef Installer” error: “Error downloading the Java™ Runtime Environment. Please check your internet connection and start setup again.” What did I do wrong? Thanks, Greg


Release of JabRef 3.5

Hi Greg!
Thanks for your report!

I think that the problem is caused because you do not have Java 8 installed and the automatic download and installation is somehow failing…

Can you please post the output of:

/usr/libexec/java_home -verbose

and can you check, if the installation of the current JDK fixes the issue

It can be downloaded here manually: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html
