Uninstalling the Application

Requirements

If you encounter any issues with this distribution, we strongly recommend downloading and using the standard distribution that uses Java SE 6.
  • If you have Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard), you should check if it has Java SE 6 available before installing: Applications > Utilities > Java Preferences. If no Java SE 6 is available after installing the latest Mac OS updates, you will have to upgrade to Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) to be able to use the latest version of <oXygen/>. Please note that an Intel Mac is required.
