I keep getting the java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: getProxyConfigURL error when trying to view certain pages with embedded java apps – ie http://www.irishisptest.com/myspeed/ and http://visualroute.visualware.com/
This was happening under 10.3 and I had hoped that the upgrade to 10.4 (Tiger) would resolve it. Other Mac users can view these pages so I know it is peculiar to my Mac.
I think what I will have to do is to do a clean install of Tiger on the Mac instead of the upgrade I did yesterday. If that doesn’t resolve it, I’m stumped!
UPDATE: I resolved this issue without re-installing the OS.
Removing the Internet Plug-Ins folder from the Library folder and re-starting the Mac sorted this for me.
I started by removing the com.apple.Safari.plist file from the Library -> Preferences folder and re-starting the Mac.
When this didn’t work, I removed the Preferences folder from the Library folder and re-started the Mac.
This didn’t work so I re-named the Library folder and re-started the Mac – bingo! Suddenly the java apps worked. Now all I had to do was put back all the folders into the Library folder (re-starting it each time) until it broke again to find out which one caused it to break.
I eventually discovered it was the Internet Plug-Ins folder.
Hope this helps someone.
