It seems to work fine if you take JRE 1.7 off the machine and install JRE 1.6...

Once they take Java out of the equation, it'll be fixed.  Until they do, however, take 1.7 off and 
Install 1.6.  That seems to fix the problem.

Hi Bob and all.

I've been through the wringer on this and have still not got much of
anywhere.  It seems some people have major problems with this and some
don't seem to.  I spent well over an hour going through the steps listed on
bugzilla that were supposed to fix this, e.g. uninstalling java completely,
cleaning the registry, installing the new java, setting the javahome
variable and path, re-installing the JAB, etc. etc.

This did sort of fix my problem, LO at least no longer says that my JRE is
defective when I try to enable accessibility.  However from what I can tell
the accessibility is still not working correctly.  Supernova still does not
read my menus or the state of checkboxes.  NVDA doesn't either so I know it
is not a Supernova problem.  I have no idea what to do at this point and am
frankly about to give up on this.  Don't misunderstand me, the folks on this
list have been very helpful trying to help me figure this out.  However
while telling me that LO isn't the problem and that it's Windows and Java is
all good and fine and I actually do believe this is the case, it does not
fix this and I still have a productivity suite that does not allow me to be
productive.  This is not something I am fooling around with as some sort of
project, I depend on it for getting paperwork done for my work.  I used to
recommend this package for my students especially those on a limited
and I probably still will for the very few tech savvy ones I get but for
most of them if you start talking to them about Javahome variables and
setting paths they're going to ask you what the living hell you're
blabbering about.  I swore I'd never give Microshaft another dime for an
Office package but that's what they use where I work and unless I get
someplace with this pretty quick I may not have a choice.

Apologies to the list for the rant, I realize this thing is a work in
progress and it's free and all that, however this is a serious issue for me.
I really want to be able to offer people an alternative to shelling out 150
bucks for a word processor and spreadsheet but I won't be able to unless I
find a reasonable way to fix this.

Best regards,

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?
