I am rebuilding my Mac environment and attempting to install theBrain 188.8.131.52 and the program hangs without completely loading (no UI is visible other than the menu bar). When I select About, the splash screen is presented. The app does not load further (the only menu item visible is theBrain and its sub-items. File and other menu items are NOT visible. I have the very latest Java installed and would like to make use of this version.
java version "1.8.0_102"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_102-b14)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.102-b14, mixed mode)
I know that other apps requiring java allow me to successfully open by using a script to setup the required Java environment variables before opening. For example (the following script allows me to configure a required Java related environment variable required by Android Studio):
Have a little fun each day.
open /Applications/Android\ Studio.app
Would something along these lines work for me to open my version of theBrain? As you may be aware; several security issues with Java 1.6 make it unsuitable for use on modern platforms.
