Description Mike Kaganski 2018-10-06 12:26:36 UTC
1. Disable JRE in Options→LibreOffice→Advanced; restart LO
2. Tools→Macros→Run Macro...

Actual: an "Enable JRE?" dialog with "LibreOffice requires a Java runtime environment (JRE) to perform this task. However, use of a JRE has been disabled. Do you want to enable the use of a JRE now?" warning pops up.

Expected: displaying available macros should not give the warning. As user has disabled JRE, it's normal that some script providers are unavailable when creating providers' list in ProviderCache::getAllProviders for cases which don't indicate that it was explicit user's intention to run something Java-dependent.
