My Zotero add-on installation failed due to Java issues. On going to Tools->Options->Advanced, no java runtime environments (JRE) appeared in the list. I installed the latest 64-bit version of Java (8u151) but the list was still empty. "Add" and selecting the Java folder also failed to find the JRE. I tried installing other versions of Java but nothing helped. Eventually I took a suggestion to install the 32-bit version of LibreOffice and this worked correctly with the Java 32-bit version installed. So it seems to be an issue with the 64-bit version. Problem occurred with LibreOffice Writer 5.4.3 installed on Windows 10 OS (all up to date).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install LibreOffice 5.4.3 64 bit
2. Install Java 8u151 (64 bit)
No items in list of JREs
The Java version just installed should be in the list

Java 8u151 64-bit shows just fine in 5.4.3 64-bit for me on Win 10.
So whatever this is, it seems to be system specific and possibly quite rare.
NOT reproducible with Version: 126.96.36.199 (x64)
CPU-Threads: 4; BS: Windows 6.19 (WIN10 Home Version 1703); UI-Render: Standard;
Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE); Calc: group, my default user profile, Tango theme
Newly installed Java 8u151 64 bit shows up after few seconds in menu 'Tools → Options → Advanced → Java'
Any additional information you can contribute?
I am also having this issue when I try to create a database. I have the most recent versions of both LibreOffice & Java; I verified that Java is installed.
Maybe try one more time with a fresh master build to see, if there is some recent fix: https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/Win-x86_64@42/current/
