The following environment variables must be set correctly for your environment:

οJAVA_HOME: if necessary, depending on the installation



Java 6 for fillable PDF forms


If the fillable parts of a fillable PDF are missing when the PDF is opened on a Mac OS system, one likely cause is that Java 6 is not installed on the machine. If this is the case, you can install Java 6 from If a version newer than Java 6 has already been installed, then the installation of the older Java 6 version will not affect the working of the newer version, which will be the default version of the system.
