Subject Missing Visual C++ Libraries in all recent versions of Open Office installer
Date Sat, 15 Sep 2012 10:43:10 GMT
For more information see

In all recent versions of Open Office, many people have complained that
they get an error about Java being corrupt. This has happened with more
recent versions of Java starting with 6.35.
The forum user "Bill" tracked down the issue, by looking at Libre office
bug reports, to being a missing file "msvcr100.dll" which is included in
Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86).
The common solution that people have come up with in the community
support forums is to install an old, insecure version of Java.
It seems like a simple solution would be to include the Redistributable
Package in the installer like many other packages already are. This will
increase user's experience by not seeing an error when first attempting
to use a wizard or the Base application, and increase their security by
not finding recommendations to install insecure software.

Thank you for your time.
