Currently, the latest Java version 7 breaks Scan Profile functionality. It is therefore recommended to hold off on the Java updates until a fix has been issued.


Recommended action

To work around this issue, it is suggested to disable Java 7 and re-enable the Apple-provided Java SE 6. To do so, please follow the steps outlined in this article.
