JVM problem

    Jun 06 2011 | 5:59 pm
    I am trying to experiment with a Java application that searches FreeSound Project for samples and i am having an error on a Macbook Pro with 10.5.8 installed. There seems to be a problem with JAVA. When i try to run the Application i get this error in the max window
    java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: Bad version number in .class file at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass1(Native Method) at java.lang.ClassLoader.defineClass(ClassLoader.java:676) at com.cycling74.max.MXJClassLoaderImpl.doLoadClass(MXJClassLoaderImpl.java:119) at com.cycling74.max.MXJClassLoader.loadClazz(MXJClassLoader.java:88) Could not load class 'FreeSound'
    which i assume means that there are [and there are conflicting Javas on this machine. But hen i change the Java order or disable 1.5 i get "Cannot Create JVM" or something very similar.
    I am wondering if anyone has encountered this issue and has a fix for it? I am trying to avoid installing Snow Leopard on this machine if i can solve it without a new OS upgrade.
    /Applications/Java Preferences lists a Java 6 as 64 bit and i saw posted that max only likes 32 bit? I am not sure if this is outdated imfo or not. Either we the app will not run currently.
    I get a different error on a 10.6 machine regarding Java but this i think is a seperate issue.
    thank you for helping

      Hey, I have exactly the same problem as you. I'm also on 10.5.8 and either get the bad version error or can't create the JVM (if I change or disable the Java order or different versions). I saw your post is rather old already, did you find a solution? Please let me know!! Thanks!!
