Workaround for ARTstor OIV on Mac OS X (Lion)

by

ARTstor’s Offline Image Viewer (OIV) is not yet compatible with the newest Mac operating system, OS 10.7 (OS X Lion) but Dr. Charles Choi from Yummy Melon Software has uncovered a workaround:

“Replace the file “JavaApplicationStub” within the app with the one existing on Lion as described in this link:
http://informagen.com/JarBundler/StubFile.html

Please refer this procedure list to one who is conversant with the Unix command line:
Run Terminal and change to the directory holding OIV.app
cd OIV.app/Contents/MacOS
rm JavaApplicationStub
cp /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Resources/MacOS/JavaApplicationStub .

This procedure was successful in getting OIV.app to run on Lion. That said the app is not fully tested as that’s your responsibility. But in the interim, you can let your users know that this workaround exists.” — Charles Choi

In the meantime, ARTstor’s Quality Assurance testers are trying produce an OS X Lion compatible version of OIV but do not have a release date yet. Stay tuned or contact ARTstor directly.
