[Scilab-users] Troubleshooting Scilab 6.1-branch installation on Mac Big Sur

Hello,

I downloaded and installed Scilab-branch-6.1 on MacOS Big Sur 11.0.1 from
https://www.utc.fr/~mottelet/scilab_for_macOS.html
Install process and Apple checking went smoothly. As mentioned, the needed
Java Runtime Edition should be downloaded the first time I open Scilab.

But the only thing I get when opening Scilab for the 1st time is a Mac OS
error message:
/« warning: failed to load external entity "/Library/Internet"
warning: failed to load external entity
"Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/../Info.plist" (1) » /
and Scilab doesn't launch further.
 

I downloaded and installed a recent version of JRE but it doesn’t help.
/julien@Julien-MacBookPro MacOS % /usr/libexec/java_home -V
Matching Java Virtual Machines (1):
    1.8.271.09 (x86_64) "Oracle Corporation" - "Java" /Library/Internet
Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home
/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/
 
I will be grateful for any help,

Julien de Vulpillières

This is not the case because you already have installed a JRE (but
unfortunately the wrong one, see below).

Seems that this is an Oracle JRE. You won't be able to run Scilab with
it. Remove it from the system and let Scilab download itself the
AdoptOpenJDK JRE at first run.
