Good Morning All:

I am trying to install Java Runtime Environment as it is a requirement for me to use the Access portion of Open Office. I Have tried numerous time, but all I get is the Java Control.

Please advise.

Thank you
Good evening,

Have you got JRE from a reliable source like: http://ccm.net/download/download-101-java-runtime-environment.

It's not necessary to launch Java to gain access to open office once it is there. As a matter of fact, Java control launch should be deactivated.

OpenOffice should detect this installation and let you choose it for use in OpenOffice via the Tools-> OpenOffice.org -> Java. If you have a JRE installed that is not detected, you should be able to add it through this same menu.

You can install a JRE or configure OpenOffice to use Java at any time to get missing functionality to work.

From the OpenOffice main menu use: Tools -> OpenOffice.org -> Java, and uncheck "Use a Java runtime environment". However, Open Office recommends that you have a Java Runtime Environment on your system to take full advantage of OpenOffice's features without any issues.
