Reverting to a previous version of Java following an update is a three-step process. You will first uninstall Java, then download and install the older version of Java from the Oracle archive, and then reinstall Voyant. This directory is part of the system software and any changes will be reset by Apple the next time you perform an update of the OS.

Next, visit the Oracle Java archive. You may need to scroll down the page to locate this particular version. Depending on the browser you are using, the Java installer will drop into the downloads directory the down arrow button top-right in Safari or will appear in the lower left corner of the browser Chrome.
