Hi, dear community members,

maybe you do know, that ARIS Express was, with older JRE versions, also working for Apple Mac.

With a JRE update, ARIS Express did not run anymore, since there was a incompatibility at one library for the user interface which we are using.

Well, eventually we did an update of the library and we bought licenses of the new version, and here you go:

You still need a local JRE installed, though.

Bye and have fun,

I'm very glad to finally be able to use ARIS Express on a mac! Can you confirm that export to PDF is not working, as I don't seem to be able to do this via the Mac.

Hi Matthew,

no, I just tested this again, and it worked...

Hello Frank!

I have to thank you so much. My live has become so much easier .. no VM Ware Fusion with an oldfashioned WIN7 only to have access to Aris Express ...

Thank you!

Best regards

I have been using Aris Express since 2013 on windows and then, with a Macbook since 2015, always used a virtual machine where I used to have both Aris and SAP. I wanted to stop using the virtual machine but I can't seem to install Aris on my Macbook (High Sierra version 10.13.3). I have installed JRE and gone through all "temporary files settings" according to what's described here in the forum but I always get the "Unable to launch application" error.

What should I do to get through it?
