I have tried to install RapidMiner on my Mac OS X but when I try to run the program through rapidminer.jar I get a message that says ...The Java JAR file "rapidminer.jar" could not be launched. Check the Console for possible error messages.  Any ideas of what to do??

    to start with, I would suggest posting this question in the RapidMiner forum...
    I will move your request, so that someone from there will help you.

    Hi cedavis2,

    first of all, sorry for the late request. I hope you've not given up using Rapidminer.

    Which version of Mac Os X are you using?

    Try this:

    - copy the rapidminer.jar on your Desktop
    - open a Terminal (the application is hidden somewhere in the Utilities folder in Applications)
    - then type "cd Desktop" and hit RETURN
    - now type "java -jar rapidminer.jar"

    Normally a double click on the rapidminer.jar is sufficient to start Rapidminer under Mac OS X

    Rapidminer should start right now or give you more information what is going wrong. If it does not work, please post the terminal output.

    I hope I could help,

    Ciao Sebastian Loh.

    P.s. I am using rapidminer under Mac OS 10.6
