Not able to open microsoft office files using OpenOffice 4.1.1

Issue: Not able to open microsoft office files using OpenOffice 4.1.1

Tit - bits: No need of any extensions/plug-ins to open .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .ppt, .pptx files in OpenOffice. It does require a JRE 6 32-bit version installed in system and the same should be configured in Open Office  Tools -> Options -> Java

Cause:

1. JRE environment is not set in OpenOffice 4.1.1
2. No compatible JRE environment in system.

Resolution:

1. JRE environment is not set in OpenOffice 4.1.1

Open OpenOffice 4.1.1

Goto Tools -> options -> Java

and try to select the available JRE.

2. Check any JRE environments (JRE6 or less     and 32-bit) available in system
using the following command:
C:\> where -R c:\ rt.jar
shows the JRE file location in your system. note down the path.

C:\Java -d32

This command searches for any 32-bit jre in the system, if available, it loads it. Otherwise, throws an error as shown below:
