Errors on startup Sikuli 1.1.3 and 1.1.4

Asked by Boudewijn Timmers on 2018-08-31

I get errors on starting 1.1.4, so tried 1.1.3 but same issue. Headline is this:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: org/sikuli/ide/Sikulix : Unsupported major.minor version 52.0

I just installed Java JRE as required, and my mac is on osx 10.13.6

both doubleclicking the 1.1.4 version jar as well as java -jar sikulix.jar in Terminal do not work.

Any suggestions?

as mentioned everywhere: must at least be Java 1.8, 10 and 11 are working also.

I suggest to stick with 1.1.4

java -version

aha! 1.6.0_65
will have to find out how to upgrade the Runtime.

on Mac currently the easiest way is to install a JDK instead.

This leads to that always the latest version is used.

The stuff is stored in

and can be managed in Terminal using
