Java Considerations

MidiYodi is developed in Java which requrie Java Runtime Environment (JRE) to be installed on your computer as well. JRE's are installed with earlier Mac versions and Unix OS'es and often it has also been installed on Windows due to other Java applications that has already been downloaded.
MidiYodi require 1.7 or later (also known as Java 7)

If in doubt, check by issuing the following command in a command prompt or shell window.

java -version

It shall respond with:

Java(TM) Runtime Environment (build 1.8.x....)

Where 1.8 is the latest major version of Java but 1.7.x works fine as well.

If Java Runtime Environment is not installed you can easily download it for free from here:

Download Java

Follow the instrucions to download and install JRE 8.
