The installation seems to be fine, and everything is working as it should - until I try to open an XML file.
When I double-click on the file with AOO running, a new window opens and the progress bar goes about halfway across the screen before I am shown an error message titled "Select JRE":
The OpenOffice configuration has been changed. Under Tools - Options - OpenOffice.org - Java, select the runtime environment you want to have used by OpenOffice.org.
When I click "OK", another error appears:
General input/output error.
Clicking "OK" on that closes the window.
If I look at my Java installations in AOO, I see that I have three versions installed: 1.6.0_35, 1.6.0_22, and 1.6.0_07. Java.com agrees that I have v6 update 35.
Choosing one of the other JREs makes no difference: the error messages are the same. Disabling the JRE in AOO also makes no difference.
How can I fix this? The XML files are important, and currently I am taking them to another machine to run them through Excel, which doesn't seem right!
