As jbead is written in Java, it requires that Java is installed on your computer. If you start jbead and no Java can be found, a web browser will open and you will need to download and install Java on your computer. (In the Mac OS X release, java is already bundled and does not need to be installed separately.)

On newer versions of Mac OS X you might get a message that the file is damaged. This message is not correct. You can use jbead by opening "Apple > System Preferences > Security & Privacy" and selecting "Anywhere" for the Option "Allow applications downloaded from:".
