the JRE defective dialog
On Windows 7 with either java 7 update 51 or java 8 update 5, every time i try to run a macro through Tools > Macros > Run Macro..., i would get the error message titled 'JRE is Defective' requesting to select a different version or install a new one. So i'd like to suggest that a link be added to the dialog of where to get a new good version.
Perhaps it is a bug in the detection mechanism.

I don't think so, maybe Jay has a 64 bits Java version, what it's no possible to use with LibreOffice, as there is no 64 bits version for LibreOffice in Windows.
With a 32 bits Java version, from a long time it has been fine for me.
And to use Java in LibreOffice I think is needed to select what Java use in Menu/Tools/LibreOffice/Advanced even if it's only one installed.

Yes i have the 64-bit of Java.

Yes using a 32-bit version doesn't show the same error. But whether its a 32-bit or 64-bit version of java, why should it show such a message when its not a defective version. And when it does show such a message, we should be able to point users to where they can get a non-defective version or instruct them to use the 32-bit version.

That had already been set. :)
Closing this as the problem is that LibO doesnt support 64-bit java, and bug 80509 is opened to solve this.
