JODConverter Setup need HELP!

Hi, I’ve been trying to get JODConverter setup on a server as a web service so I can write a HTTP Request to it and convert a PowerPoint doc into a PDF. Does anyone here have experience in setting up JODConverter?

<snip> Otherwise feel free to take a peak at the error I’m getting (see details below) and let me know what you think would be the solution to get this working.

More data: I’ve got OpenOffice install on a Tomcat server. I’m using Java jre7 and JODConverter core 3 beta 4. I tried setting up JODConverter in Java bin on the server but when I run it via command line I get the error:

Exception in thread “main” java.lang.IllegalStateException: officeHome not set and could not be auto-detected
