So you have a from-the-browser Java application that requires Java Web Start to load on your beautiful Mac, and that Java application is named something crazy like:
What do you do? It doesn’t open automatically, and when you double click the filename it just asks you what application you want to use to open the file.
Well I will tell you what you do!
- On the “Launch Application” dialog that opens when you double click the filename, click “Choose…” beside “Choose an Application”.
- Navigate to Macintosh HD > System > Library > CoreServices.
/System/Library/CoreServices/Java Web Start.app
- Choose “Java Web Start” and click Open.
There you go. A post like this would have saved me 15 minutes anyways, hope it helps someone else.
