    We need a lot more details. We can't help without knowing OS (Win, Mac?), Multibit version, java version etc etc Nov 6, 2014 at 0:30
  • I know for a fact Java 6 is not needed. I run it with Java 8 without any problem. Do you have any error message or something that might help us find the real problem? Nov 6, 2014 at 6:25

if you are using OS X, you can just double click


works on OS X 10.10.1, Java 7 Update 71.

No it works with the latest version, you need to uninstall java completely and install again.
