Problem creating a Data Base in OO Base

paulhuffington
I am a total neophyte in computers but wish to try creating a data base to mange physical files.
When trying to create a Data Base I get messages that I must install and access Java JRE.
I believe  I have down loaded the correct JRE but I cannot create the data base after following the instructions TOOLS; OPTIONS; JAVA Etc.
The Users List seems to be the only place I can go for help.
I can’t find anyone to talk to in OO

OpenOffice, being a 32 bit application, requires a 32bit Java installed on your computer (can live alongside other Java versions) and selected in /Tools /Options /OpenOffice : Java.

Download from https://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp A 32 bit Java will have 586 in its filename; download the offline installer and install it on your computer, then select it (as above).

OpenOffice being an opensource project, available for free download,  there is no paid support staff.  Support is offered, on this list and on the OO Forums, by users on a pro bono basis in their own time.

It sounds like you have the 64bit JRE installed on your system. AOO is a
32 bit application on windows and requires the 32 bit JRE. go to the
following link and choose either of the first 2 downloads. They are for
the 32 bit JRE that you need. Install that and open AOO and navigate to
Tools/Options/OpenOffice/Java and verify that the box for Use  a Java
Run Time Environment is checked and that the window displays the
information for the JRE. If it does click OK and you should be able to
start building your database.

Re: Problem creating a Data Base in OO Base

Thanks. I believe that I have tried all that but still no success.
 One thing I noted however was that the screen where you check that you
want to run a JAVA Runtime environment, also says:
 "Java Runtime Environments already installed"
Does this "installed": refer to the computer in general or to the
particular Database I am trying to work with? Is it possible that I did
succeed in installing a JRE but possibly the wrong one? How can I check
this?

Just below that text is an area that will show all 32 bit JRE's that are
installed on your computer. If you have a 32 bit JRE installed it will
show in that area and should have a filled radio button before the
vendor and version information. If that area is blank there is no 32 bit
JRE installed.

For a visual representation of what you should see if a proper JRE is
installed and functioning for AOO see the following link to the 4.x User
Guide in development.

Thanks for your help. I re installed OO and downloaded JRE again. All is
working now.
Much obliged.
