Information on OS X / Java / MyACI
The MyACI software is dependent on Java to operate correctly. If your computer does not meet the minimum requirements for the latest version of Java, you may experience technical difficulties
Please note that Java and Apple continue to make changes to their software, and these changes may cause issues with your MyACI ordering software.
If you are having issues with your software getting to a certain point in the download process and then stalling, here are a few things that ACI recommends:
If your Mac is running OS X version 10.6.8 or earlier:
- Java is no longer supported on Mac OS 10.6.8 or earlier. If your Mac is running an older version of Mac OS X, you may experience technical difficulties or be unable to run the MyACI software until you update to a newer version of Mac OS X.
If you are running Mac OS X version 10.7 or later:
- Delete any desktop icons
- Make sure your Mac has the most current version of Java. To check your version, or update if necessary, visit the Java website by clicking here. Follow the steps below to update to the current version of Java
- Before attempting to re-launch, clear your Java caches, and clear out the program properties. Instructions are located in the section MyACI Troubleshooting for Mac.
- Once updated, navigate to acilab.com, hover over “Resources,” and click on “Ordering Software.” Click on the MyACI icon. Your computer will then add a new shortcut to your desktop, and your software should launch.
- You may receive an error stating that the program cannot launch because it is from an unidentified source. If that does occur, please see the fix listed in the section MyACI Troubleshooting for Mac.
