    Trying to add JRE 64 Bit for Libre office without success


    Hello I'm at a loss with this.
    I recently had a HD failure which has required a new HD and a fresh install of W10. I lost the Windows office style extra that I had with the pc and don't seem able to re-install it so I got LibreOffice to allow me to compose letters etc.


    I want to use Librebase to make a DataDase but I keep getting the error [ LibreOffice requires a 64-bit Java runtime environment (JRE) to perform this task. Please install a JRE and restart LibreOffice.]
    I download the Java, it says successfully installed but as soon as I try to build the DataBase it gives that error message.

    Can anyone give me any assistance please.
    I'm not to strong on the PC internals.

    Thanks

    Scroll all the way down on this page and click on the "Test Applet" What is the offline method for downloading and installing Java for a Windows computer?

    I had tried Jacee option before and it says I have version 8 update 241 all good but as soon as I try to run the database I get that error.

    I tried again using Jacee's directions and got exactly the same results. Grrrrr.

    I then ran Callender's link and had the same result it says it is there but fails as soon as I try to build a database.

    Have you got any other tips.

    Best

    The only other suggestion that I can come up with is:

    Uninstall Libre Office and Java

    Geek Uninstaller - the best FREE uninstaller - scan for leftovers then reboot.

    Try installing 32bit Libre Office and 32bit JRE.

    See if you then get the same error.

    I have come across this nice Uninstaller/Swiss Army tool today. It seems to perform nicely.

    Hi there
    I think you might need to install a version or two back of the JRE rather than the current one -- also ensure your version of Libre office is 64 bit.

    It's a bit overkill but if you install the whole kybosh (the JDK --the development kit) that might also work as well.

    Personally though I'd look at KINGSOFT OFFICE rather than LIBRE OFFICE --seems to be more compatible --certainly as far as EXCEL is concerned and doesn't need messing around with the JAVA stuff.

    Cheers

    Thanks people I'll have a go at them today.
    Just some notes b4 I start:
    Ref Callender >>> the error I get says Libre needs 64 bi? But I will follow your concise directions.
    Ref elPusher >>> looks cool
    Ref Jimbo >>> I may short cut all and use your suggestion of Kingsoft Office

    Thanks all

    It's got some other tools included:

    HiBit Uninstaller for Windows??

    Personally I use a couple of other uninstall utilities.

    Another option is Apache OpenOffice, free Office style app, documents, spreadsheet etc.
