Only if run in 32-bit. Apple's java 6 was both 32 and 64 bit capable and is at least compatible with os 10. Depends how java 6 is set in the app.
I have apps (such as WireShare) that use Java 6 on El Capitan 10.11 and there are java 6 updates available for the later macos (10.12+) releases.

The program seems to crash at start, I tried getting the about window to open to no avail. ....
I meant the Finder information window about the app, not after the program has opened. Sorry I should have been more specific.
