The reason is that the installer bundles the JRE (an Apple requirement for publishing Java programs to the Mac App Store). Note 3: When you are ready to distribute to the public, you'll want to sign your application with a Developer ID certificate.
An error “you need to install the legacy Java SE 6 runtime”, is encountered when you open any Adobe application.
With Mac OS 10.7 (Lion) and later, the Java runtime is no longer installed automatically as part of the OS installation. Follow any of the methods below to install Java runtime.
Under Apple's implementation of Java, it was possible to have multiple JREs installed. The Java Preferences application was used to determine the first compatible version that would be used. You can change the default JRE by starting Java Preferences and then dragging Java SE 10 to the top of the list. Well, install Java 8 should be done via this command: $ brew cask install java8. After that, you should have two Java versions, java12 and java8. In case you want to uninstall a Java formula, use this command: $ brew cask remove java. It will remove java formula completely from your Mac. Current Java version can be verified by this. With Mac OS 10.7 (Lion) and later, the Java runtime is no longer installed automatically as part of the OS installation. Follow any of the methods below to install Java runtime. Java 9 and Java 10 were non LTS(Long time support) releases from oracle and according to new release cycles from oracle, they will stop supporting non LTS release as soon as new version released thus Java 9 lost its support when 10 was released and Java 10 lost its support when 11 was released but Java 8 and Java 11 are LTS release so oracle will support it for long time.
You can download and install the latest Java runtime from the Java website - Download Free Java Software.

Many Adobe applications depend on the Oracle Java Runtime Environment (JRE) for some features to work. Apple recently changed the way it includes Java in Mac OS, and with Lion, Java is no longer preinstalled. It is now an optional install that you must select.
Since current Adobe installers and applications were built before these changes by Apple, Adobe software anticipates that Java is installed. Adobe and Apple have worked together to ensure that you can install Java at OS install time. Or it can be installed later before you install Adobe applications. At runtime, when you launch an Adobe application, you are prompted to install Java if it is not already installed. If you do not install Java before running an Adobe application, there can be missing or improperly behaving features. If you encounter any issues, install Java to correct the problems. Adobe recommends that corporate IT organizations pre install Java (or make sure that Java can be installed through their firewalls/security) to avoid conflicts with Adobe applications.
If the Java runtime is not installed, some issues that are known to occur include -
- Failure to launch.
- Install Java runtime prompts when you attempt to use the applications.
- Applications hang or quit.
I'm pretty sure my problem is about the same. Basically I cant install the Java 7 update cause I get an error message during download telling me I dont have mac os x 10.7 or higher....but I do. The Oracle Java update for Lion just isnt recognizing it! I have mac os x lion 10.7.5 on my laptop and for some reason, certain Pogo games wont load...it says its loading but never does and just closes. I went to the help page, did what it said, I scanned for current updates, installed them, rebooted then went back to Pogo and clicked on the java test link to see what version im running. I got the error 'missing plug in' so I clicked on it and was taken to Java's website for instructions, clicked 'Download Java for Mac OS X,' then hit sytem requirements and saw that I had to be running os x 10.7.3 or above and I have 10.7.5. I was good to go, hit download and now Im here! Annoyed and confused beause updates and upgrades are pretty basic and simple. You either meet the system requirements or you dont. I meet them but cant get them cause it says I dont....its a viscious cycle and Im rambling like a madwoman! Is there an easy yes or no answer to this, maybe a follow steps 1,2,3 A,B,C you can post for non computer savvy moms? LOL I just want the handful of Pogo games I used to be able to play, to play again...nothing complicated! And why is it only some games and not all of them? Dont answer that, my hair already hurts...haha
