I have downloaded Java 17 and still, when I open the 0Storybook file it won't load. I assume this program can't open on a Mac. Can someone tell me how to fix this? (Does this have to be in French?)

Hello, could you describe precisely what you are doing that is not working? I regularly check that oStorybook works correctly with Java 11 and/or 17 and so far I have not encountered any problems.

I downloaded the Java 17 but when i open the file with the java default opener it opens for a second and then closes. How do i fix this. is there another java opener i should download instead?

When I downloaded Java 17 should I have downloaded a separate opener for it? I thought it came included in the download. I downloaded Java 17 from that website someone said to download it from.

Hello,

You could try to use the Terminal. First of all check the operational version of java with the command:
java --version

Note the answer message for further details.

Then try to launch oStorybook with the command:
java -jar /path/to/install/dir/oStorybook.jar

Tell us what the result is.

When i put java version info it gave me this:

java 17.0.4.1 2022-08-18 LTS
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 17.0.4.1+1-LTS-2)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 17.0.4.1+1-LTS-2, mixed mode, sharing)

And when I put the path thing it gave me this error

Unrecognized option: -jar/path/to/install/dir/oStorybook.jar
Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.

You must separate "-jar" from the suite with a space, and you must replace "/path/to/install/dir/" with the folder where oStorybook is installed.

It worked, thanks. Do I have to open it with the terminal every time I want to open the program or is there a way to make a icon that runs the program automatically when I click it?

Ask for help on a MacOS user forum. Specify that you need to run the command:
java -jar /the-installed_dir/oStorybook.jar

I can't help you more, I don't have a machine with MacOS.
