My OS is Windows XP Professional. I use MSOffice Word. I want to install OpenOffice 1.1.4 but the programme needs to use a Java environment and I cannot find one. I unzipped the OpenOffice download and opened the installation wizard. The wizard cannot detect a Java environment and it has told me to browse for one. I have browsed without success. I do not know what to look for.

What should I do ? How will I recognise a Java environment ?

If I do find a Java environment, will I have to change my security settings - to accept Java ?

Thanks in anticipation. oldsoldier

You can download the latest release of JavaRuntimeEnvironment from the Sun System's site:


Once Java is installed, OpenOffice.Org will automatically find it.

I personally use and recommend OpenOffice.org to anyone needed a good office suite; there will soon be a new release with enhanced interfaces and a better database application.

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
