Mac os 10.9.1, Java 7 update 51

Whenever I attempt to open Tracker I get the following message:


"There has been an error.
Java 1.6 or greater is required to install and run
Tracker. Java can be downloaded from http://
www.java.com/download The installer will now
close."

Parental controls are on, but there is no request for a password.

Hi Paul,

This is a bug in OSX--it doesn't report the existence of Java 1.7 to the installer unless the OS itself installs Java! Try installing Java from this page:  http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572?viewlocale=en_US

I hope this helps :-)  Doug
