Subject: [DVDongle] Most recent JRE
I see several references to people running JRE 1.6. When I run the Java Preferences App on my MacBook Pro, I see the screen shown below. I'm not all that familiar with Java on the Mac - am I running the most version? I don't see any reference to JRE (Java Runtime Environment), and I'm not sure what "J2SE" refers to. If I needed to update something with Java on a Mac, how would I do that?

Hi Luke. If you are running MacOS X, make sure you run the Java preferences app and move 1.6 to the top in the dialog boxes. I had a similar problem until I did that.
