|Just updated to Sierra, and everything seems to work (mostly) fine in 2104.5 (some missing Main Tool Palette items missing as others have noted), but when I tried to import an XML file, big problem.|
It seems that Sierra has an updated version of Java that 2104.5 doesn't recognize. Anyone found a work around?

|If you've updated your OS from a previous major version (i.e. El Cap, Yosemite, Mavs, etc), then all Java installations will be REMOVED. You will need to re-install them if you need them.|
You can still install Apple's Java 6 for use in Sierra. Needed for some Adobe Creative Suite apps, as well as Finale. (Fin 25 removes the Java dependency altogether, I think.)
Any other versions of Java you might have are neither needed for nor compatible with Finale.

|SOLVED! Followed the links through the MM Help Centre and downloaded Java SE 6. Would that all Finale problems were so easily solved. . . .|

|Finale 25 does not make calls to Java. |
When Oracle bought SUN, Apple was no longer allowed to distribute Java with the OS beginning with Mavericks. You have to get Java 8 from Oracle but it is 64bit only. Java 6 supports 32bit apps such as Finale 2014.5 and earlier.

|MusicXML still uses Java in Finale v25. But it's a 64-bit version of Java that is bundled with the MusicXML functionality, just like we have done on Windows for many years. So there is no more need for Apple Java 6 with Finale v25. Just one of the many benefits of Finale now being 64-bit!|
