Review the LibreOffice Java configuration file with notepad, it is
located at

Note that it has stanzas for Location and Version details--those must
match the version of the 32-bit Java JRE you are attempting to run.

If you have an entry in your PATH environment variable pointing to a
32-bit JRE, then deleting the javasettings_Windows_x86.xml configuration
file will allow it to be rebuilt with the correct JRE details for your
system. This delete/rebuild during version upgrades is just part of
housekeeping that needs to happen.

If you don't allow the rebuild--then the old JRE 1.6 configuration file
will always fail with a 1.7 version JRE.

As to dropping use of a JRE--this link shows exactly the LibreOffice
components that have a Java dependency.

I'm having a bit of a bother with any version of Libreoffice installed
with JRE 1.7 on Windows 7.

Libreoffice crashes on start with any version of Java JRE greater than
1.6.  If I go back to 1.6 I'm O.K.

Anyone else having issues?

If so and this is a new bug, what do you want to see?
