OpenOffice download - do I need JRE?

  funkey_monkey 20:21 23 Mar 06


I'm downloading OpenOffice 2.0.2 from their download site and I am asked whether I want it with JRE or without.

I assume that JRE is Java Run-time Environment, correct?

Do I need to download the JRE as well and will it do any harm if I download it to my machine?

I am running on Win XP MCE as present. However, I've no idea as to whether I have JRE anlready on this machine.

What should I do?

Goto Control Panel/Add Remove Programs, look for J2SE Runtime Environment 5 Update 6 (the very latest version). If you have an older revision you may want to remove your current one and install the latest click here
It won't do any harm
