First time here? Check out the FAQ!
I am unable to install many extensions due to the error 'Could not create Java Implementation Folder'. I have rechecked the java path etc and not having any luck. I tried un-checking the 'use java runtime' and that did not help. I would also like to know how to remove extensions that came bundled-I do not nee all the language extensions that are installed. Perhaps that is not possible. USing LibreOffice 188.8.131.52 on Vista. Is it because I have Java tm 7 update 5 and JavaFX 2.1.1 installed? Thanks in advance.

LibO support Java 7, but (especially on 64-bit Windows) you might receive warnings about the Java version being defective. In that case, download and install the most current JRE 6 version http://www.java.com/java6download/. Make sure you get the file "Windows x86 Offline (32-bit)". Then configure LibO to use it at "Tools - Options - LibreOffice - Java"
To avoid confusion, the exact error message is "Could Not Create Java Implementation Loader" ("loader", not "folder").
We now have a source-level analysis here.
The most successful workarounds are described here it seems.
Just wanted to add I heard back from java after filing a report. They said it is a Libre Office bug and pointed me to this thread. https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=50371

I seem to be having the same problem on Linux (Mint 14; Kernel 3.5.0-17) running LibreOffice 184.108.40.206.
Looking at the package manager I seem to have mostly JRE6 components installed despite the package billing itself as a JRE7 package: icedtea-plugin (removed), gcj-jre (installed), icedtea-6-jre-cacao (installed), libgcj13 (installed), gcj-4.7-jre (installed), gcj-jre-headless (installed), gcj-4.7-jre-lib (installed), libgcj-common (installed), openjdk-6-jre-headless (installed), openjdk-6-jre (installed), icedtea-6-jre-jamvm (installed), openjdk-6-jre-lib (installed), gcj-4.7-jre-headless (installed), icedtea-7-plugin (removed), libgcj13-awt (installed), default-jre-headless (installed), openjdk-7-jre (removed), gcj-4.7-base (installed).
