First time here? Check out the FAQ!
I installed LibreOffice rel 3.6.0 under Windows 7 and each time I try starting LibreOffice, or any LibreOffice application, I get a Fatal Error pop-up containing this error message :
Unhandled exception: cannot get uno environments!
I tried, reinstalling 3.5.5 just to check my Windows installation, it runs fine.
I checked the md5sum of the dowloaded ;msi file (it's OK). Re installed 3.6.0 and the problem is still there.
What's next ?
Thanks for your help

I ran into the very same problem today. Installed LibreOffice 3.6 under Win7 (x64). Get the same "Unhandled exception: cannot get uno environments!" and after that, I got a MS Visual C++ Runtime Library error message about soffice.bin: "This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way".
As suggested by tohuwawohu, I did rename my profile directory (AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice\3\user) into "user-old", then tried starting LibreOffice again. This did not help at all: I just got the very same error screens again.
Interestingly, it turned out this LibreOffice startup had actually tried to create a new "user" profile directory before it aborted. But this new profile directory contained nothing but one empty "user\extensions\bundled" folder.
Can someone please help? There seems to be something seriously wrong here!

I have the same problem. I updated from v3.5.x to v3.6.x and now I cannot start LibreOffice anymore.
Very, very aggravating! Please fix this ASAP!
I had the very same problem after I upgraded from 3.5.6 to 3.6.2. I found the reason for this error to be the deselection of the UNO language environment during the installation procedure. It was installed in my previous version. The solution was quite easy: I simply used setup program ("Control Panel" -> "Uninstall a program" -> select LibreOffice -> "Change") to add the UNO environment and ever since it works.

3.6.1 worked perfectly last night. Now it won't load as above. If LibreOffice is trying to break into the business environment, it had better get it together, the sooner, the better. Where's the solution? Where's the answer to this:
unhandled exception cannot get uno environments
To have software that loads fine twelve hours ago, and not load at all today, is completely unacceptable.
Again, where's the fix? It doesn't appear in this forum.
I had this "uno environments" problem too, on any attempt to run Calc v3.6.
Downloaded 3.6.1 today, uninstalled 3.6 first, installed 3.6.1, and now it works.
Win7 x86 (i.e., 32 bit).
Oh p.s. had the help files installed too; uninstalled first and reinstalled last. Probably makes no difference ;-)

After searching and numerous tries, I got it running. I had to :
But now a General comment about ask.LibreOffice.org
It's very difficult to use, it's all but user friendly!
You allways need more Karma Points to achieve your tasks.
The effortlevel for posting here is higher than that for searching on other sites. I thought uploading an avatar would improve karma. Nope! you need those stupid points. It seems this site has been set up by geeks for geeks. It's not usable by Joe user ! How can I show to non IT people it is very simple to get helped with LibreOffice ?
I won't use this site any more as long as posting remains a nightmare

@ PhilDur: your strategy of a complete uninstall followed by a clean reinstall turned out to work. Thank you so much! Still it's a little strange that the LO people haven't noticed this problem - something must be wrong here. Sorry to hear this site doesn't work for you. I don't understand what your problem with the site is, as it works fine for me. Anyway, thanks again, Henk

Have exactly the same problem on an x32 windows 7 i5 system. Tried the uninstall, then remove Libeoffice folders in program files and then reinstall 3.6.0 and it still has the same problem. Have gone back to 3.5.5 successfully.
