Reinstalled Java Producing Errors

I accidentally deleted my Java install while cleaning out some files. (I thought it was just a leftover installer - doh!) I reinstalled it but now am getting errors. I’m a noob (obviously?) trying to relearn database management.

Not sure if it matters, but I could only get the JDK file instead of a Java Runtime Environment? The JRE download links kept going to a login page instead of downloading.

I had a problem when I initially installed Java a month ago. I installed it a few different times/ways before it worked correctly, but I don’t remember how I got it to work. The ‘connection to data source’ and ‘null.pointer’ errors, below, appear to be very vague from my research. The middle error code led me to the pic below, where I went to Tools>Options>Advanced>Class Path, but I don’t understand what to do from here, if I’m even on the right track?

PC Stats:
LO ver (x64)
PC: Win 10 x64
Java is JDK-12.0.1 (Win 64).

Base gives the following errors when I try to open any file (table, form, etc.)

  • The connection to the data source “odb01-Employees” could not be established.

*Error code: 1000

The driver class ‘org.hsqldb.jdbcDriver’ could not be loaded.The additional driver class path is ‘$LO_JAVA_DIR/hsqldb.jar$LO_JAVA_DIR/sdbc_hsqldb.jar’.

*Error code: -1


Update: I was able to get JRE 8u211 to download and install, but am still getting the same errors. Also, JRE does not show up under Tools>Options>Advanced>Java Options.

What is the filename of the JRE installer? See this FAQ.

Thank you, Mike!

When I looked up the downloads page, I found a different downloads page. Using the link in the FAQ got me to the right page with the right package. Thank you.
