After installing LibreOffice Portable (from here), I tried to install the Google Docs Sync extension, ooo2gd. However, installation failed with the error message “Could not create java implementation loader”. There are many posts about this, most of which suggest either

  1. disabling, then re-enabling “Use a Java runtime environment” on the Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Java menu page
  2. Deleting a user profile

That didn’t work in my case because that menu page had no JRE listed, in spite of me installing the latest JRE from (at time of writing JRE 7). What sorted it was installing the last version, which is confusingly also called the latest, recommended version (Version 6 Update 27 at time of writing). I got it from here: After installing it appeared in the JRE list on the Java options page in LibreOffice and oo2gd installed correctly.
