    Using the OSX download I received the error message cannot open application, it would show in the dock briefly then close again. I updated java with no success.

    Uninstalled that and I next tried the Any OS download. Unzipped it, navigated to the folder and ran the java -jar wekimini.jar command.

    From here I received these error details:

    java -jar wekimini.jar
    Exception in thread “main” java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: wekimini/WekiMiniRunner : Unsupported major.minor version 51.0

    Any hints at how I get this running would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    DW. I believe it wouldnt run as i’d installed it a couple of directories deep in the applications folder. Cleaned it all out and Reinstalled the OSX version and it has now opened quite happily
