3/7/2013:  Java Requirement Updated for Coeus eRA System

The version of Java required to run Coeus has been updated to Java 1.7.  The previous Java 1.6 release has reached end of life and is no longer being supported.

If you do not yet have Java 1.7 installed on your computer, you or your IT support staff will need to install the appropriate version for your operating system.  If you previously only required Java 1.6 for accessing Coeus, it is recommended that you uninstall this older version from your system. 

The latest Java 1.7 JRE may be downloaded from Oracle HERE.

After you have updated Java and installed Coeus, there are a few minor changes to be aware of.  Upon opening Coeus, you will be prompted with a Security Warning asking if you want to run this application. Select the check box for I accept and click Run. If you do not wish to see this message each time you open Coeus, click on Show Options and check always trust content from this publisher once the Security Warning window is displayed.  Also, Windows 7 and Java 1.7 no longer allow for the storing of your UM directory ID and password, you will be presented with a log in screen each time you open Coeus.

For more information on installing Java and Coeus please reference the Coeus Installation Guide.
