Java runtime environments (JRE) already installed: Select the JRE that you want to use. On some systems, you must wait a minute until the list gets populated. On some systems, you must restart LibreOffice to use your changed setting. The path to the JRE is displayed beneath the list box. The control panel should show 'Java 7 Update 67' and 'Java 7 Update 67 (64-bit)' which are the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions. AOO will find the 32-bit version after you're installed it. AOO 4.1.10 on Ubuntu MATE 20.04.Windows
On a 64-bit Windows system you've got to install a 32-bit Java because OpenOffice for Windows is a 32-bit application. There is nothing wrong with installing as many Java runtimes as needed to run all your applications.
At the time of writing, this is the link from where you can download a Java Runtime Environment that differs from the automatically suggested download (e.g. Windows 64-bit): https://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp
The JDK (development kit) for Java developers can be used as well but it is a much bigger download.
The one and only Windows JRE that interfaces with a 32-bit program such as OpenOffice is marked with a red border.
LibreOffice 5 for Windows is availlable as 32-bit and 64-bit application, so you don't need additional 32-bit Java for a 64-bit LibreOffice 5.
Combinations of Windows, Java and Open/LibreOffice:
64-bit Java on 64-bit machine: C:Program Files... works with 64-bit LibreOffice
32-bit Java on 64-bit machine: C:Program Files (x86)... works with OpenOffice and 32-bit LibreOffice
32-bit Java on 32-bit machine: C:Program Files... works with any installable office
64-bit software on 32-bit machine: impossible to install
The 'Visual C++ Runtime' by Microsoft needs to be updated to the most recent version. This is also recommended for countless other applications regardless of the programming language.

MacOS only at the time of writing (2015-03-18)
Recent versions of AOO and LO for the Mac are 64-bit versions anyway. If you encounter problems with the latest Java 8, make sure that you have the original MacOS version of Java 6 installed. Reference: https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=126130#c20
Install the JRE package of your distribution and any office suite which matches the bitness of your system.
64 Bit Jre For LibreofficeThere is a glitch in the Java section of the OpenOffice options dialog. When you select the right Java version from a list box with leading radio buttons, you've got to take care that you actually click the radio button within the list box. Just clicking the list box entry does not select anything.
- After clicking the first entry, the last entry with the checked radio button remains the actually chosen one.
64 Bit Jre For Libreoffice Free
|Edit: 2015-07-19: The major glitch with that list box is that it lists incompatible JREs among the compatible ones, particularly it lists 64-bit JREs that are incompatible with OpenOffice on Windows. Below the box you see the path of the currenly selected JRE. The path of a 32-bit JRE on a 64-bit Windows system usually starts with 'C:Program Files (x86)' whereas the 64-bit JREs are stored under 'C:Program Files'. This is not a problem with 32-bit Windows systems where you can install 32-bit software only. The program path of a 32-bit Windows always starts with 'C:Program Files'|
64 Bit Jre For Libreoffice Windows 10
Shall I install 32bit or 64bit Java? -- To make my system tidy, I don't want to install both.
- The version of Java should match the version of LibreOffice, so 64-bit. There have been some issues a couple of months ago in LibreOffice with detecting the latest versions of Java, such that you would have to manually add them to LibreOffice. It may have been fixed since, but if something doesn't work, you should keep this in mind.
