While launching, Dreamweaver CC (13.2 and earlier versions) prompts you to install Java SE 6 Runtime.

Java SE 6/SE 7 Runtime is installed on the computer.

Note:

In Dreamweaver CC 2014, the prompt does not appear when you launch Dreamweaver. However, you are prompted to install Java SE 6 runtime while logging in to PhoneGap Build service (Site > PhoneGap Build Service > PhoneGap Build Service).

Solution: Install Java SE 6 Runtime

In the pop-up window that appears, click Install and follow the onscreen instructions to install Java SE 6 Runtime.

Note:

In Dreamweaver CC 2014, you can't log in to PhoneGap Build service without installing Java SE 6 Runtime.

Java SE 6 runtime update message

Important: Ensure that you install Java SE 6 Runtime only by clicking Install in the pop-up window. If you install Java SE 6 or 7 Runtime through any other means (for example, by directly accessing Java.com), Dreamweaver could still display the prompt.

Even if you have installed Java SE 7 Runtime, you still need to install Java SE 6 Runtime as described above.

If you continue to see the prompt even after installing Java SE 6 Runtime as described above, perform the following steps:

  1. Uninstall Dreamweaver.

  2. Repair your disk permissions using Disk Utility.

  3. Restart your computer.

  4. Install Dreamweaver.

Additional information

Dreamweaver displays such a prompt because, when you update to Mac OS 10.9, Java SE 6 Runtime on your computer gets uninstalled.
