To open “MaxMSP,” you need a Java SE 6 runtime.

    I emailed support with this. Their solution was to reinstall MAXMSP and that did not work.
    - Lion comes with Java SE6, I updated the JRE and JDK to 7, deleted Java 6.
    - java -version reports: java version "1.7.0_09" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_09-b05) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.5-b02, mixed mode)
    - java development in eclipse and xcode compiles and runs fine with 1.7
    - I have this in my config file: max.java.jvm.version 1.7.0_09
    - When I did have Java 6 installed last week, Max would open fine but refused to run my Java 7 projects (that's why I deleted Java 6, to force max to run java 7)
    - I don't get it :(

      Follow up from support: Max 5 will not work with Java 7. I reverted to Java 6 and everything is fine now. Anyone successfully using Max 6 and Java 7 SE?

      Java 7 for OS X is 64-bit only; Max is currently 32-bit.
