          Priority: P3
            Bug ID: 120979
          Assignee: ooo-issues@incubator.apache.org
           Summary: Install/bundle msvcr100.dll to improve Java
                    compatibility
          Severity: normal
        Issue Type: ENHANCEMENT
    Classification: Application
                OS: All
          Reporter: pescetti@apache.org
          Hardware: All
            Status: CONFIRMED
           Version: AOO 3.4.1
         Component: ui
           Product: installation

After discussions on ooo-dev and on the forums, it's now clear that many issues
about "corrupt Java/JRE" are related to a missing msvcr100.dll library.

This DLL is included in Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86)
and actually it's Java that requires it, not OpenOffice itself.

But including it would solve Java-related issues for many users.

(redistributable package)

patch by Ariel with an alternative approach, but this would simply hide the
non-working JRE from the list)
