Problem description:
On Windows XP SP3 32 bit with Java 7u3, in LibreOffice (3.5.0 and 3.5.1 RC2) one can't work with base. The error window told me, that Java is broken. (But that's not the problem, because the rest of LibreOffice and our Java compilers work well.)

The same - only use Java 6u31 instead of 7u3 - all works well. This happens on three different hardware in my school.

Again the same - only use Windows 7 instead of Windows XP - all (with Java 7) works well.

Thus, it's a problem of Win XP, Java 7 or LibreOffice base


Steps to reproduce:
1. In LibreOffice choose for Java a JRE 7 version. Restart LO.
2. In base, open a new database
3. Select the Icon "Tables" in the left view.
   The Error occured.

Without activating Java, base won't work properly.

Platform (if different from the browser):
Win XP SP3 32 bit, Java 7

Is this still an issue with the latest stable releases of LO and Java?

This is in essence what I saw on my Win XP machine.

Sorry for answering so late, but I was on holiday.

Nothing changed - the problem still exists (LO 3.6.1.2 RC2 and JRE 7u6 on WinXP 
SP 3 with all new updates).
One only need to create a new database - and LO shows the problem.

With JRE 6u43 Base works.

Thank you for your interest

Could you rename the LO directory profile and test again (see http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile)?

I did it, but no change!
"I renamed the directory (...\3\...), start LO (after a long time it finished starting, but no success with a base-file), the directory was again there."

Thanks for trying to help. Works it on your PC?

It's normal the directory was again there, it's automatically recreated by LibreOffice (that's why it was longer to start this time).

I've got dualboot Linux/win7, but always use Linux.
I should try to reproduce on Win7 but perhaps someone could tell here?

Thanks, but there is only a problem with Win XP and Java 7.
With Win 7 and Java 7 LO-base has no problem.
