Hi,

I have an issue with innstalling Esri CityEngine 2014 on my Mac with OS X. When I attempt to install Esri CityEngine I keep getting an error message telling me to downgrade to Java Version 6. Is this a known problem? and is there a way to get around this?

Thanks,

Eirik

I had a ton of issues with Java installing minecraft for my kids so maybe I can help. First you can try this:

How to Install Java in OS X Yosemite - that should work and I think its what I had to do to get CityEngine up.

If it doesn't you can try downgrading to Java 6 - what I had to do for Minecraft - How to downgrade Java 7 to Java 6 on Mac OS X - YouTube

Now for the bad news....I've been having some issues with Yosemite, with apparently no known workaround for Yosemite... See my post here - Cannot Browse Computer Directories
