Dear all,

In many messages is mentioned the issue with jre defective when trying to add
under Tools / Options / OO/ Java ...... I still don't get it to work.

I have installed on my WinXP SP2 machine OO 2.2 incl. JRE 1.6

Under Base (or Calc or Writer for using macros) I get the same message over and
over again. Why does OO not 'see' the installed jre 1.6 and use it even though
it is told and recognized it each time under Tools / Options / OO/ Java is opened?

Can someone shed some ligth on this basic trouble ?

Thanks,
HaskeNL[/list]

I would install OOo without the JRE and install the JRE directly from the java website: http://www.java.com/

I have also installed JRE separately. Same problem with OO. I am also using NetBeans IDE without any problem on my Windows XP machinewhen using JRE . So my conclusion still is that OO 2.2 doesn't know how to link up to my installed and working JRE.

Is anyone out there in the OO community to tell me what I overlook or have to try ?

Have you gone to Tools--->Options--->OpenOffice.org-->Java and clicked ADD. Then navigate to your installed Java. Click on the directory that says JRE1.6.0_01 and click OK.

That's indeed what I did exactly(in Calc, Write and Base) .....hence my astonishment on this issue...

When you go to Tools--->Options--->OpenOffice.org-->Java try not clicking Add and give OOo considerable time to locate installed versions of the JRE.

I did both .....first I waited to see the available JRE come up and fill the radio-button and say OK...
Second time I waited to see my JRE pop-up again and filll the radio button BUT also clicked ADD to go to the folder of the available (and recognized JRE) and clicked OK and then OK to leave the pop-op titled Options - OpenOffice.org - JAVA.

Now I also looked under Security (three steps up form Java) to see maybe there had to be set. NOthing found.

So where sits a settin or settings which prevent OpenOffice from letting me use JRE ?

As far as I know the only one is the check box in the Java dialog.

I know but that isn't the reason JRE isn't functioning.

Can somebody pls. help me out of this nasty issue ?

You can check your Java installation at the Java website. It may be a Java problem rather than an OOo problem.

Please check whether JRE 1.6 has been added to environment variable. Normally, when JRE is installed class path will get automatically added to the environment variable. In case it is not done, JRE may not get recognised by the system.

Hi !
I have the same problem as HaskeNL : the selected JRE is defective .
JRE installation is verified OK by Sun site, class path and OOo java option seem to be well set.
Now, what can I do to make OOo work with Java ? Any Idea ? If not, how to find a solution ?

Many thanks in advance.

Win XP pro SP2 - OOo 2.2.1 - JRE 1.6.0_01

I had the same problem - Java website verifying the install, other Java programs running but OO insisting it's defective - via the majesty of google I found a solution.

I added the path to the java directory into the PATH and CLASSPATH environment variables, which are accessible via right-click on My Computer --> Properties --> Advanced Tabs --> Environment variables.

Add the full path (in my case C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_01\bin) after a ; in the PATH variable and put the full path in the CLASSPATH and that fixed it.

(I'm using XP BTW)

Thanks a lot, kjf, for your answer.

I've just solved the problem by installing a 2.2.0 version, which is delivered including the java stuff. And it works !
