[IDV #IQI-544424]: Unable to install IDV 5 on Mac OS X 10.9.4



Jim,

Unfortunately, IDV via Java Web Start is currently dead. We would like to revive
it, but have no immediate plans to do so (the situation is out of our control).

So I think it is the admin user that is giving us some trouble. This problem is
difficult to handle remotely, but here goes...

The problem appears to be the installer is finding the wrong Java. We need to
fix that. As far as I can tell, the version of Java that the JavaAppLauncher is
finding is not compatible with your architecture.  I don't know how this
happened and which user is the culprit, the "regular" user or the admin user.

Please make that Java is running normally for both the admin and regular user.
Checking the Java version below with java -version is a good way to test for
that.

Once that is resolved, hopefully the installer should work. But unfortunately,
this multiple user set up with regular and admin users is giving us some
trouble.

Best,

Unidata IDV Support
