After updating our office to OSx Yosemite, one of our older Macs refused to run some Adobe CS 5.5 applications. Adobe CS 5.5 depends on Java SE 6 Runtime which was no longer available after the OSX Yosemite upgrade process. An error message will appear when starting the affected CS5 app, while a “more info” link leads you to a blanc page at Apple’s website. Not helpful.
If you run into the same issue, here’s the easy fix:
- Download and install Java for OS X 2014-001 from Apple’s website:
- Download and install Java from Oracle’s website:
- Restart your Mac
- Do your happy dance
