Description Andrea Pescetti 2012-09-16 20:59:26 UTC
After discussions on ooo-dev and on the forums, it's now clear that many issues about "corrupt Java/JRE" are related to a missing msvcr100.dll library.

This DLL is included in Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86) and actually it's Java that requires it, not OpenOffice itself.

But including it would solve Java-related issues for many users.

Context provided on ooo-dev:
- (forum discussion with analysis)
- (technical discussion)
- (redistributable package)
- (a patch by Ariel with an alternative approach, but this would simply hide the non-working JRE from the list)
