The newest JRE 9 64 bit isn´t found by libre office.
Because lO search for rt.jar and substitute libs.
JRE 9 from oracle is only in 64 bit for download.
Tehe next LO 64 bit should be for JRE 9, the last JRE from Oracle.
The new Java 9 release seems to work correctly on a 18.104.22.168 build.
But, as Stephen B. suggested would happen bug 100501#7, for Windows builds LibreOffice is not finding the Java Runtime and it must be located manually with the Add button.
Looks like to locate the "JavaHome" string we will have to change our registry search path in the Windows Registry  to match the Oracle path changes.
The JRE now uses
While the JDK uses
Previous builds used
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment\1.8.0_144]
and we search for the "Java Runtime Environment" for JRE or "Java Development Kit" instead of the new JRE, JDK entries.
Also, looks like there will be no 32-bit JRE for Java 9, meaning we'll have to continue to support the older paths indefinitely.
The problem also exists on the Mac, see bug 112716
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 100501 ***
Stuart -> Alex, * -- Fixed on Linux and OS X but there is still work needed for automated JRE detection on the Windows builds as in comment 1. Rather than reopen bug 100501, removing the duplicate.
Can we close this bug report as RESOLVED FIXED now?

Yup... its picking up the JRE 9.0 with current builds.

Yeah, sorry, looks like I'd lost sight of this bug when I came around to fixing the issue.
