Hi, I have installed the latest version of LibreOffice. When I started it, it asked me to install the latest version of Java, which I did. Before doing that I noticed that it wouldn't allow me to install some extensions because it said that it needed Java (x64) to be installed. After installing the latest Java ver. 8 (build 201) I restarted LibreOffice and got the following error message.

So what do I need to do in order to get LibreOffice started without giving me this error message and also telling me that I can't install an extension because Java is not present.

You probably installed 32 bit JAVA, but you shoud install 64 bit JAVA, please download and install exactly 64 bit JAVA:

That was it. My mistake was to assume that the downloaded Java was 64bit, because my Windows 10 is 64bit, and I thought the site would automatically download the 64bit version.

Lesson learnt.

Thank you.

Apologies. I'm new here, and made an ass of myself, by assuming that where I was replying from was correct.
