I just installed Openoffice but it won't detect Java.

I have checked and there is a follder on C: called

Java
JRE

No matter what folder I point OOo to it says it does not contain a java environment. There are files in these folders I mentioned???

Windows XP with all updates and SP3

Hello, and sorry for my poor english.
I had the same problem with OpenOffice 3.1.1 and I found that it does not recognize the 64-bit versions, and even higher than 6.
So I think that you, to use Java in your OO, is forced to install the latest release for version 6.
See you soon and good day. Wink

Java is located at c:\program files\Java\jre6. OOo will not work with Java 7 and also needs the 32bit version. Check Tools---Options--->Openoffice.org----.Java. Make sure that "Use java Runtime Environment" is checked.

That is what I have set but under Java runtime environments (JRE) already installed there is nothing there and I can't seem to get anything in there.

Did you click the Add button and navigate to c:\program files\Java\jre6?

Hello Warith
did you solve this problem eventually?
I have 32 bit OO 3.4.0 installed on Windows 7, and 64 bit JRE 7, and I am getting error
"The folder you selected does not contain a Java runtime environment"
I also have JRE 32 bit 1.4.2 but oo does not recognize that either
