Sorry about that, you need to install Java 6 on your Mac and then make sure the has the correct path the the Java 6 exe for mac. That was originally written for Linux, for MaxOSX you have to do a little tweaking.

Hi @ all

i have found the right way to start Jukes under MAC OSX 10.5.6

First you copy the Jukes Folder in Normal Root of "Macintosh HD"

Rename Folder to "jukes"

Then Open Terminal and type

/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6.0/Home/bin/java -jar /jukes/jukes-

then will Jukes work fine

Hmmm...I have no idea why you would be getting that error. Basically Java is saying it doesn't like the PowerPC chip and works only on the Intel mac? Apple controls the JDK for all Mac OSX products so maybe Apple is now only support the Intel Mac for Java 6 and above?
