RAPIDMINER 9.7 BETA ANNOUNCEMENT
The beta program for the RapidMiner 9.7 release is now available. Lots of amazing new improvements including true version control!
"Why does RapidMiner Studio fail to start on Mac OS"
RapidMiner Studio 6.x depends on the Java programming language version 7 which the user has to install himself. This in turn requires at least Mac OS 10.7.3 or newer.
For downloading and installing Java 7, see the following article:
“What is Java and how do I install it?”
If you have Java 6 and 7 installed in parallel, make sure you are using the correct one. To that end, open a terminal and type
Java 7 will report a version number of 1.7.0. You can then start RapidMiner Studio 6 by just double-clicking “RapidMiner Studio.app”. If that fails, try running RapidMiner-Studio.sh from a terminal. If you see the error message “Unsupported major.minor version 51.0”, this means that you are still using Java 6.
