      I have some problems install Oracle BI Publisher Desktop for 32 bit Office on Windows.

      Configuration Information:
      Win 7 64 bit enterprise
      Ms Office 2007 32 bit
      JDK 1.7u17 32 bit

      When I install BIPublisherDesktop32.exe, it is unsuccessful. The error message is 'please make sure JRE version 1.6 or later is intalled'.

      Any thoughts?

          Since your OS is 64bit and JDK 1.7u17 32 this might be a reason for that. If possible go for java 64 bit.

          I would suggest to go for Jdk1.6 with 31 update.
          That is most stable version and need to go for critical patches frequently.

          Just give a try if helps mark

                  Ok. I was able to download 1.6... txs. Tried to mark it helpful but cannot see the button.

                  OTH, I do have java 1.7 installed (and being used by other apps)... Can I just go ahead and install 1.6 ? Any possible problem ?
