Subject RE: OpenOffice 3.3 and Java 7
Date Wed, 03 Jul 2013 21:36:55 GMT
There are some prospective problems with 3.3 that need to be ruled-out/verified:

 1. may not recognize 64-bit versions of the JVM, depending on which JRE you
have installed.

 2., in part of its detection of available JREs, may be looking for Sun as
the provider.  It might not recognize JREs that now have Oracle identified as the provider.

 3. On Windows, there may also be registry variations with Java 7 JREs that
3.3 does not recognize.  Whether there is anything comparable for Solaris is something others
can speak to.

The issue I am having is OpenOffice will not accept the Java 7 JRE via Tool->Options->Java->Add.
When I try to add the Java 7 JRE, I receive the following  popup:

"The folder you have selected foes not contain a Java runtime environment. Please select a
different folder."
