Description jshanks 2007-02-27 21:13:18 UTC
After installing 2.2 RC2, I opened a text document and tried
inserting a "Push Button" from the tool bar.

Then right-clicked the button and selected "control", Selected the "mouse button
pressed" selection.  I received an error indicating that the control required
the Java Runtime Environment be installed.  Clicking "OK" on that error
immediately popped up the same error . . . and so on.

There is really 2 problems here.

1. 2.2 didn't pick up my default JRE.
2.  The error dialog wouldn't go away.

I had to open the task manager and kill to get the error go go away.

After restarting OOo I was able to select my JRE and everything works fine, but
it may scare the heck out of new OOo users especially since the error doesn't
indicate how to fix it.

Reassigned to MSC.
Comment 2 kpalagin 2007-03-01 14:36:23 UTC
Partially confirming - it takes about 15 OKeys to dismiss the warning about 
Java not being installed.
Comment 3 marc.neumann 2007-05-31 10:49:35 UTC
confirm also, reassign to the right developer.

msc -> fs: can you please assign it to the right developer.
Comment 4 Frank Schönheit 2007-05-31 19:08:50 UTC
fs->ab: Am I right in assuming you're responsible for the script selector dialog
Comment 5 ab 2007-06-01 10:22:13 UTC
ab->jl: Seems to be a Java related problem in the first place,
are there any known issues?
Comment 6 joachim.lingner 2007-06-01 10:48:35 UTC
I think the problem with the error dialog is a known issue. However, the first
problem, that the JRE is not recognized, is new to me. Could you tell me what
JRE do use (from Sun ? which version)? Did you use the Java installer to install it?

Comment 8 jshanks 2007-06-01 14:41:41 UTC
I had to manually go into the Java setup (see attachment) and select the JRE
that I wanted to use before OpenOffice would recognize that Java was installed.
