[solved] How to install LibreOffice plugin with Java in a custom path

edited June 23, 2017
I don't have admin rights in this computer. The Zotero installer handles that easily, and LibreOffice was already installed; now I want to install the LibreOffice integration plugin.

There was no Java on the computer, so I downloaded the tar.gz file, unzipped it to a folder I own, and set my user account's environment variables: CLASSPATH as %JAVA_HOME%\lib; JAVA_HOME as C:\Users\[MyUsername]\Documents\jre1.8.0_131; and PATH as %JAVA_HOME%\bin.

That was good enough for LibreOffice, which recognizes I have a JRE installed. But that was not good enough for Zotero, which complains I don't have Java installed when I ask Zotero to install the LibreOffice plugin. How can I convince Zotero that Java is installed?
