    Default Running a external exe in Mac OS

    In a mac os, when I try to run an external exe by the process builder I get the next exception:

    ava.io.IOException: Cannot run program "installation/osx/program": error=13, Permission denied
    at java.lang.ProcessBuilder.start(ProcessBuilder.java :460)
    at java.lang.Runtime.exec(Runtime.java:593)
    at java.lang.Runtime.exec(Runtime.java:431)
    at java.lang.Runtime.exec(Runtime.java:328)

    In windows I dont this issue, the process is well instantiated. I could I do?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can't run .exe on Mac OS can you?!?!?

    Can you run the app on the command line? I've seen this error when the app has incorrect permission.

    In fact, I canīt run it in the command line.... This seems not to be a java problem. Do you know how to configure these permissions in mac?? (I am not personally using this OS..)

    Thanks for your help.

    chmod, 755 allows it to be read and executable by everyone. You can also do a 'ls -al' to check if it currently has executable permissions.
