    HEX-NET WiFi Configuration Utility [Mac OS X]

    Mac OS X 10.7.5
    Safari 6.1.2 (7537.74.9)
    Java 7 Update 51

    I downloaded the HEX-NET WiFi Configuration Utility here and I'm unable to run the .JAR file. After I double clicked the file, it shows up in my dock, but nothing else pops/opens up. I have the latest Java installed with default configuration settings. Any suggestions/ideas?

    Someone who actually knows/uses Mac OS will have to chime in here. Among the Ross-Tech crew, there's only one, and that's Santos. But I think there are others here who might be familiar with Mac OS...

    I had the same problem. Bottom line, I gave up on Safari and downloaded Firefox to do it. Here is the link to my thread.

    I didn't have a problem downloading the .JAR file, rather an issue with running/opening it. Out of curiosity, what Java file did you have to download?

    Same thing with me on 10.9.2.

    Suspect there is a 'security' setting somewhere but could never get it to work, so ended up using Winders.
    Am curious to find the solution myself.

    It was HEX-NET ConfigV1.9. When I double clicked on it, a screen came up that said I needed to download another file, which was an Oracle file, to read it. I don't remember what that file was called. Once it was downloaded, the Hex-Net configuration file worked.

    The Oracle file was Java Platform (JDK) 7u51

    I installed the JDK and it still wouldn't run, so tried it on another Mac and it said to run it from the command line.

    Opened a terminal, cd to Desktop, and typed java -jar HexNetConfigV1.9.jar and it worked

    By the way, for it to work, I've found that I need to have the Hex-Net plugged in before I open the Hex-Net Config file.

    Firefox 27.0.1
    Java 7 51

    I just downloaded it to my desktop, then with the Hex-Net device connected to a USB hub, I double-clicked the file. It opened right up.
