Kindle Previewer for mac is not launching for me. I am using 10.8.2. System log does not have any useful detail--just says 'exit 1'. Wonder if it is a java problem.

Working for me. What happens if you run it from the command line?

Code:
/Applications/Kindle\ Previewer.app/Contents/MacOS/Kindle\ Previewer
Oh, have you installed the Java update yet? Apple blacklisted the previous version because of security holes, so Java won't run at all if you haven't updated it.

I had Oracle JDK 7 on here also, though not the latest version (the updater ran a day or two ago but it must have been unsuccessful). After uninstalling it, Kindle Previewer runs.

Unfortunately when I install the latest JDK (1.7.0_15), Kindle Previewer again fails to launch. Apple's latest JVM is 1.6.0_41.

KP's Info.plist defines the executable as 'JavaApplicationStub', not 'Kindle Previewer'. So that is what it is trying to run when Kindle Previewer.app is opened. If I launch 'Kindle Previewer' instead, I get this error:

Code:
Error: This Java instance does not support a 32-bit JVM.
Please install the desired version.
I tend to think this is KP's problem. Java is pretty good at backward compatibility.

But at least I know how to get it working if I need to.
