Users on Mac OS X Lion 10.7 and Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8 may encounter a pop up message when they open a Serendipity Client window or Application containing a list of Spectrophotometer instruments, e.g. the Lineariser.
The message will state that a component of the software requires Java to run. The message is generated because the DTP70 Spectrophotometer driver provided by x-rite is written for Java.
Mac OS X Lion no longer provides the Java Runtime Environment by default.
Users have 2 options:-
1. Install Java Runtime on OS X
Follow the link in the error message pop-up to download and install Java for OS X Lion/Mountain Lion, after which the Serendipity Client and its Applications will start and run normally.
2. Remove the DTP70 driver
If the DTP70 Spectrophotometer driver is not required and/or the user does not which to install Java on Mac OS X Lion/Mountain Lion, close the message window which will shut down the Serendipity Client.
To remove the DTP70 driver from the Serendipity Software (Blackmagic / Megarip/ Veripress) installation and stand-alone Serendipity Clients:-
– Shut down the Server and any Clients.
– Remove the
file from any of these Serendipity installation folders:-
For stand-alone Serendipity Clients, right-click on the client icon and choose Show Package Contents, then remove the
file from the /Contents/MacOS/readers/ folder.
After the drivers are removed, the Serendipity Client and its Applications will start and run normally.
