Issues to open FIJI from the desktop

Dear all,

since my last update of MacOS (OS X El Capitan 10.11.2), I can’t open FIJI anymore…

The program tells me to instal new JAVA 8, which I did and verified it was correctly installed, but the program is still asking me to install it.

Does anyone has an idea how to solve this problem?

Thanks ahead.


There are a few issues on OSX El Capitan. Please try the options described on the FAQ page.

Dear Jan,

thanks for your response.

Actually I downloaded the JAVA Development instead of Runtime Environment and it worked.

There is also a fix pending (thanks to @hinerm) that we hope will address this issue, so the JRE from is detected and used properly in the expected circumstances.
