    FX3 SDK macOS



      I have installed mac version of FX3 SDK following the official procedure. But I can't run the eclipse since the Jave version mismach. 




      I removed all existing Java versions and tried both Java 7 and Java 6. None of these Java versions worked.




      Although FX3 SDK stated that the Java 7 is required, I have successfully installed and run FX3 SDK on Ubuntu 16.04 with Java 8. I think the macOS support for FX3 SDK would be an easy update for Cypress. Please help!

          Which MAC OS are you using? Can you clarify the issue? are you not able to open the the eclipse? 


          If so, it can be a permssion issue, Please check:
          1) go to eclipse/ezUsbSuite.app/Contents/MacOS
          2) add the executable permissions  (chmod +x ezUsbSuite)


          If this does not help, please provide us a complete detail of the issue that you are facing (you can attach snapshots as well).

            Hi Nishant


            I followed your method to add the executable permission and re-installed Java SE 6 runtime from Apple. Now Eclipse works!


            I am running macOS Sierra 10.12.2 on an Macbook Pro with 13-inch screen and touchbar.




            Best regards!

              Similar problem here --

              I get a pop-up that says "To open “ezUsbSuite.app” you need to install the legacy Java SE 6 runtime." when I click on the eclipse icon.  I can start the app from a terminal window by  $HOME/Cypress/eclipse/ezUsbSuit.app/Contents/MacOS directory and typing ezusbsuite. (but it is very fragile ... lots o crashes)  After installing legacy Java SE 6, I can click on the ezusbsuite icon and I immediately get the crash report window. Followed the permissions recommendations above, but there was no change (already had exe permissions) Any ideas?


              OS version: 10.14.4

              ezUsbSuite version: 1.3.4
