[Solved] JRE: What is this prompt to go to Tools>Options

Hello,

Sometimes, frequently when I access Help>Find but on other occasions too, a dialog appears warning me of a change in the configuration of OpenOffice and prompting me to go to TOOLS>OPTIONS>OFFICE>JAVA and select the right JRE.

In my installation the TOOLS Menu does not have the OPTIONS command. So even I understood and desired to do what I am prompted for I can't.

Also, when this dialog appears OpenOffice is stuck and I have to Force Quit it to go back to my work.

Would someone please help me discover what went wrong when I updated from 4.1.7 to 4.1.8 ? Why do I not have an OPTIONS command under TOOLS ? Why do I have to select a JRE ?

Thanks very much in advance.

On a Mac, the equivalent is OpenOffice | Preferences. For more information on OpenOffice and Java, see Troubleshooting Open/LibreOffice and Java

You may also find Tutorial: Mac FAQ a useful resource, especially Q00/A00 and Q06/A06 in this case.
