The Error message is related to Java. Is there installed 32 BIT JAVA on your computer?

The AOO is a 32 bit software, it requires 32 bit Java even if it run on a 64 bit operating system.

- Check the java version on your computer.
- Try the LibreOffice. It has 64 Bit version for Windows_x64.

What version of the Comppack are you using?

The latest version of the extension was released in the year 2011. Maybe it is not compatible with 4.x versions off the AOO. (Or maybe it is not compatible with the installed Java version...)

Sorry, I can not try the CompPark extension with my AOO portable version, because I am using a permanently installed 64 bit LibreOffice, and I have not 32 bit Java on my PC.

My experience with some OpenOffice extensions written in Java is that those written long ago in Java may not work in modern versions of OpenOffice without modifications to the Java code. If one has knowledge of Java, one can open the .oxt extension with an archive manager and drill down using the archive manager, opening the .jar extension to find the underlying Java code, which one could then modify.

I do not know sufficient Java to advise any detail of modification needed.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.10 on Xubuntu 20.04.2 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP
