Resolving the licensing error in Mac OS X Yosemite

In case you used Liquid Notes on your system before upgrading to Mac OS X Yosemite, you will be greeted by a licensing error after completing the upgrade to OS X 10.10 when launching Liquid Notes:

This is due to Apple having made changes on the system level for starting and handling applications. As a consequence, a newer version of the license manager of Liquid Notes is required to run the software.

Follow the steps hereafter to complete the update process of Liquid Notes after you have upgraded to OS X 10.10.

Install the Java SE 6 Runtime

After you completed the upgrade to OS X 10.10, launch Liquid Notes. This will trigger a warning message that Java SE 6 needs to be installed on your system:

Click on the button "More Info...", which will take you to the download page for the legacy version of Java SE 6, or click on the link hereafter - Follow the instructions there, and complete the setup process for Java SE 6.

You do not need to uninstall any other version of Java you may have installed on your system. Liquid Notes will chose the Java SE 6 Runtime at launch automatically.

Note: Some users have reported Safari showing a blank page when loading this page. Please use either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox if such problem happens.
