Couldn’t Install ColdFusion on Mac OS X 10.8.4?

There is a Java update (1.6.0 Update
51) for Mac OS X 10.8 and 10.7 around June 16th 2013.

But unfortunately, there are issues
with it. And so, any ColdFusion installers would have failed to launch if you
try to install.

However, this Java 1.6.0 update 51
is corrected (patched) in a week or so that comes through “Software
Update…”.

So, if you install through
“Software Update…” now it should be fine. And you will be to
install ColdFusion or ColdFusion Builder. And you are not affected.

This blog is for those unlucky who
have installed during that weeks’ time when JDK 1.6.0 Update 51 which has
issues been installed through “Software Update…”.

Since, a version of 1.6.0 Update
51 is already installed; it will not show the corrected version of Java
1.6 update 51 under “Software Update…”.

If you are in such scenario, you
should be installing Java by downloading it manually from the following
location for Mac OS X 10.7 and 10.8.

http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572 (For
Mac 10.7/10.8)

http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1573
(For Mac 10.6.8)

To know, if you have properly
patched version is there or not execute the following command:

>/System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk/Contents/Home/bin/java
-version

(a)

java version “1.6.0_51”

Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment
(build 1.6.0_51-b11-456-11M4508)

(b)

java version “1.6.0_51”

Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment
(build 1.6.0_51-b11-457-11M4509)

If you are getting result as in (a)
you are not on a properly patched Java. You need to manually download and
Install Java.

If you are getting result as in (b)
you are good to go (See the difference in build number).
