[Solved] OpenOffice doesn't recognize Java

Post by technoob »

Hi,

I´m new here, so forgive me if I don´t know all the rules yet.
I have a the following problem: OpenOffice does´nt recognize java.
OpenOffice version: 4.1.12 on windows 10
I installed the 32bit version of java and tried to manually add it in OO in the settings. I think to have shown the right path as well: C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_333\bin but am confronted with the message that file does not have the jre in it. It is definitely there, as it is detected by Uninstaller. I´ve tried:
updating OO, updating Java, restarting the computer. I´ve searched different threats as well to no result.
By now I´m desperate. Can anyone help???

Best wishes,
technoob

Presumably the topic is about OpenOffice even though the Apache organization has more than 200 projects

Hi, thx for your quick reply.
I´m sure I tried the thing listed there as well... Should I just post in there additionally?

No. Just install LibreOffice.

Let's down Oracle JRE.
Download Adoptium Temurin and install it.

@Bidouille

thank you, that seemed to work. :)

Just half an hour after the original post, OpenOffice decided to see the JRE and everything worked. Today it disappeared again.
I hope it stays this time
