Can't launch app since java update
Answer

When I open the WebStart application now, I get the error "Unable to launch the application."  The "Details" button shows me this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><jnlp codebase="http://igridd.com/"  href="igridd.jnlp"><information><title>iGridd</title><vendor>Griddlers.net</vendor><description>iGridd - griddlers and triddlers solver</description><description kind="tooltip">iGridd</description><homepage href="http://www.igridd.com"/><icon href="http://www.igridd.com/iconig.gif"/>  <shortcut>    <desktop/>    <menu submenu="iGridd"/>  </shortcut><offline-allowed /></information>    <resources>        <j2se version="1.4+ 1.5+ 1.6+ 1.7+"/>        <jar href="jars/igApplet335.jar"/>        <jar href="jars/iglibs005.jar"/>        <jar href="jars/themeimages017.jar"/>        <jar href="jars/treeimages015.jar"/>    </resources>    <security>        <all-permissions/>    </security>        <application-desc main-class="com.igridd.client.IgApplication"/></jnlp>

I've tried trashing the iGridd app, downloading and reinstalling, but always with the same results.  Any ideas how I can fix this?  Nothing that I've seen in the threads has worked for me (although I haven't tried downgrading java, because I haven't been able to figure out how to do it on my Mac without reinstalling an older OS).

You have to uninstall the latest Java update. We keep telling our users - do not install Java's latest version. This time they messed up everything. Maybe in their next release things will be better.

Okay.  Unfortunately, this one came as part of a security update, I think, so I didn't even realize java would be affected.  It was only in researching this problem that I discovered java was imbedded in the OS that way.
