I also use LibreOffice with LanguageTool → http://languagetool.org installed as it works very well for Esperanto.

EDIT: And that was a waste. It doesn't work with 64-bit.

I am on 64-bit (Linux) and it works fine for me. Windows: Have you checked whether you have installed Offline JDK (32-bit)? If on Linux: Have you installed the package libreoffice-java-common?

As far as I could see it they do not offer 64-bit for Windows. As I also have Windows 7 I will test it there.

I have tested it and it worked for me on Windows 7 64-bit.

Here is something the developers say: • Note that if you have a 32-bit version of LibreOffice/OpenOffice, you will also need a 32-bit version of Java - LanguageTool will not work otherwise. • Restart LibreOffice/OpenOffice (including quickstarter) after installation of this extension • If you are using LibreOffice and you want to check English or Russian texts: Use Options → Language Settings → Writing Aids → Edit… to disable LightProof and enable LanguageTool for English and/or Russian.

Also for the tool to work you have to specify your mother tongue under Tools→LanguageTool→Options.

The website for java detects that I have a 64-bit installation of Windows and only offers up a link to the 64-bit version of java. So I can't get the 32-bit download until I figure out a way to trick the website. The stand-alone LanguageTool works fine, but I really only want the extension for LibreOffice.

EDIT: By doing some navigating, I was able to find a way to download the x86 (32-bit) version of java.
