This is LibreOffice version 4.4 which I just installed. The Java is version jre8.1.0_31 (also just installed) running on Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit system. When I open Base it allows creation of a new database but I can not create tables or anything else to put in it.
The entire content of the error message is: LibreOffice requires a Java runtime environment (JRE) to perform this task. The selected JRE is defective. Please select another version or install a new JRE and select it under Tools - Options - LibreOffice - Advanced.
This is followed by a second message: The connection to the data source “New Database” could not be established. No Java installation could be found. Please check your installation.
What is wrong?
