The new Community GIS viewers require users to download and install Java. CLICK HERE for the free download before proceeding. If you have Java installed and are trying to access the viewer for the first time, you will encounter the following Java pop-up that you should check the box for "Always trust content from this Publisher" and then click "Run". As long as you have that box checked, you will not encounter the Java pop-up during future viewer visits on your computer.
