I tried to run Vienna Ensemble Pro 6 but it says it needs old ( "legacy" ) Java 6 installed. Is that correct?  

Plus, I have the latest Java 8 running, why does it need 6? Isn't 8 backwards compatible? or should your new app be programmed with the latest?

In a way, Apple support warns against installing Java 6 versus downloading the latest from Oracle.

Ok , I sent an email to support with all the info in these posts and below.

VEP version 6.0.15857

on Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.6

Not much info in the window. It simply said to install "legacy Java" 6

So I did.  It works now because I installed Java 6 from:

Try uninstalling Java 6 from your test Mac, and run VEP again:

   Using a terminal window, remove 1.6.0.jdk  from /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines

You'll get the same window, I'm sure.  Reinstalling Java 6 is easy.

Many people remove it for perceived security reasons, like I did.

After I uninstalled Java 6 with rm ( remove on the command line), VEP 6 still works. 

Strange. Must have been a glitch on own my system.
