A: Sci2 users trying to install the tool on Mac OS X Sierra. To run Sci2, you will first want to install the legacy edition of Java 6 for OS X 2015-001 (https://support.apple.com/kb/dl1572?locale=en_US). After installation of the appropriate version of Java, report difficulty locating the shared companion library of plugins. To correct this problem, you will need to modify the Sci2.ini file
-startup plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.2.0.v20110502.jar --launcher.library plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.carbon.macosx_1.1.100.v20110502 -vmargs -Xms256m -Xmx1024m
After making the modification to the Sci2.ini file, use the unix-executable file to launch Sci2. The Unix Executable file is found by selecting Apple Command and then click Sci2 icon, which will show a drop down menu. In the menu select "Show Package Contents". Next, in the new directory, navigate to Contents>MacOS and select the file labeled "Sci2." Selecting this file will launch a terminal window and a separate tool window.
