Mac OS 10.8.3 , affects FMPA11 and FMPA 12


simple send email script that have been working in numerous databses for years, now do not work.


Suspect it is yet another Java perversity.


Have not had Java installled on my MacBookPro sinve last clean OS install, hadn't recognised that email scripting was not working ( having been away quite abit in recent months...)


Now get FM message:


"Some of the files that are needed are either damaged or have not been installed. Please run the installer to correct this problem."


Note that the script stepping does not post an error code


Thinking it may be lack of Java, installed update, which deleted Java Prefs... dropped in a copy of Java prefs...


Deleted FM12 and re-installed ( fmpa_12.0.1.183a.dmg, fm_updater_12.0.4.403.dmg), same message.


Any guesses, insights, spotting of the obvious?



Current Java installed is 1.6.0_45-b06-451
