When trying to start the GroupWise 7 SP1 client for Intel Macintosh computers, the client attempts to start running, but does not load (the GroupWise icon pops up on the Dock for half a second and then disappears)


This problem can happen if the Mac OS is configured to use (Java) J2SE 1.4.2 instead of the newer J2SE 5.0.

You should be able to fix it by running a utility called "Java" in | Applications | Utilities | Java | J2SE 5.0, and configuring the settings to use J2SE 5.0.
