Does LO require Java to load properly? [closed]

I've been using Libre Office for several months without a problem. I recently uninstalled Java on my WIN7 PC due to recent Java security problems. Now LO begins to load and then I receive a message "that a problem caused LO to stop working properly. Windows will close the program and notify me if a solution is available"

Is this caused by my deletion of Java?

Thanks for any help.

Is there a solution for LO not loading ? Maybe updating LO to a later version?

Try to reset user profile It may help. And of course update to the latest stable version.

No, java is not a mandatory component for LibO to work. Most functions works fine even without it. After uninstalling java you can't use wizards in LibO. As for me, java is uninstalled on all computers where LibO is used (due to permanent security issues with java) and everything works without any problems.

Wiki page listing components still written in Java here. The main ones affecting users are likely to be those listed here.
