What are the versions of OS X and Java are you using?

I'm using Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.5

Entering "java -version" in terminal shows this result:
java version "1.6.0_65"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_65-b14-466.1-11M4716)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.65-b04-466.1, mixed mode)

Ah, the OS version was above -- my phone chose to display it using a tiny font so I couldn't read it :-(

It looks as though we are generating code that is not compatible with Java 1.6 for the uint type.
I think I know what the problem is. (I can confirm that the current ROTD does work with Java 1.8,
so if that's an option, you may wish to use that until a fix is available.)

Fixed in rotd-2017-03-06. (Part of the MLDS->Java code generator was not handling the builtin uint type correctly; the problem would only show in versions of Java that don't support autoboxing.)
